This is useful information; I have fifteen headless boxes of two types (one is 
an older AMD K6/2 which would need the i586 install option, and the other is 
a super industrial box made by MiraPoint; the Mirapoint rack mounts have 
built-in UPS's and only a serial console accessible from the outside of the 
case, even though they are built on an Intel server board that have embedded 
VGA, the VGA connector is in such a location that the case has to be halfway 
disassembled to get to it.)

The AMD K6/2 boxes were Agilent ATMprobes; they do not have a keyboard port on 
the backpanel at all, and use the serial port for everything.  They 
unfortunately don't have a USB port, either.

Hmm, a picture is worth a thousand words; I'll post a set of pics sometime 
today of these boxes to my website, and then send a link to the list.
