Linux without Monitor


Hi,

I wanna build a LInux Media Center without a monitor screen using the Asus Pundit barebone with TV-out. Is it possible to install Linux in any way without using a monitor just using the TV?

well the tv IS the monitor... it will perform the same role, just a low-spec monitor enabled in your bios.

Thanks for the reply.
I didn't know that the TV out is already enabled in the BIOS. I've heard that the TV out can only be enabled after the installation. But if this is not the case then I won't have a problem I guess.
