Hi all.

I a quite new to linux. I have resently setup Ubuntu Server to manage mail, web etc..
I have a failing Windows 03 server that i need to keep running for a few more months until i migrate all the data/solutions over.

Rather than replacing any hardware, I was wondering if it is possible to install a copy of MSS03 in VirtualBox on the Ubuntu server with bridged networking and then manage that via RDP.

Now here is the question. Does anyone know how or if this is possible without using an Xwindows system. i.e. control the whole process via shell? I have mobility issues at the moment and physically getting infront of the box is dificult.

Many Thanks, S.
