What needed to boot a pc?

Hello.

I am planning on running a Windows NT 4.0 Server on an old desktop pc. I just wanna 'stuff' it somewhere and than access it remotely if i need to work on it via Remote Administrator. My question: What do I need to have connected to the pc for me to remotely access it alright? I know i don't need a monitor, Do I need a keyboard? Mouse? I will also be rebooting the system remotely.

Thanks,

well, you wouldn't even need a keyboard or mouse if you were accessing it remotely, right? you'll be using the keyboard, mouse, monitor on the other comp. your server box would theoretically just need a power cable and ethernet cable plugged into it.

this isn't true on all biosi (plural???)

you should be able to disable halt on all errors if it's an issue

just ram and probably a video card to boot

dont' even need a HDD in theory, but for a MS OS you will.

some motherboards are weird about booting without a video card, but yeah, for the most part you can run a computer without a lot of stuff.
