The main issue is that you need to think before you type something; lest
you do something that requires you to plug a monitor in. Some things can
include, rebuilding your kernel, changing network settings, playing with
firewall rules, stopping/starting sshd's, etc.

A good line of advice would be to get it working with a console attached,
and use it remotely and ssh to it. Oh. and your bios settings might
need to be changed so it will boot without a keyboard present.
