Headless Router RedHat 9.0 Will Not Boot

hi all,

i built a simple home LAN router out of a 586, using redhat 9.0 as the o/s. seems to work fine. packets can move in/out router. ssh works in/out.

aim is to make this router headless. have already changed setings in BIOS to 'No Halt' on errors, therefore not having mouse/keyboard attached is ok.

if the graphics card is in and the VDU is attached the sys boots up nicely, eth0 comes up etc. if the VDU is not attached, the sys will not boot up.

if i boot it up with the VDU attached and then disconnect the VDU, the sys remains stable and allows me to ssh in and do everything that i want until i ask it to reboot.

how do i stop the lack of a VDU from preventing bootup? i have googled and read that you can emulate the system as a dumb vt-100 terminal and other options. have read that not having a VDU attached should not make any difference.

thanks, bdm.
