I have been advised, in response to a post on the "Installation" section, to replace 8.04 with 10.04 on a Poweredge 2850 that I intend to use as a dedicated core in a rack in the garage.
However, lest I waste time and energy, I'd like to know if the PE 2850 will work at all.
It appears that its Radeon 7000 onboard video will not allow X to setup and it also seems that there is no way to disable the onboard video or to replace or substitute it.
My question is... Does a dedicated core have to have a video card at all? Or a properly set up X environment?
