btw, if the machine without the monitor has an xserver installed, 
you can even start graphical applications and see the output on the 
monitor of the other machine:

user at boxwithscreen:~> ssh -X user at boxwithoutscreen
user at boxwithoutscreen:~> xosview &

after a couple of seconds, the window should pop up on your screen.
(don't use this on slow links, such as a modem, but LAN is fine.)



The handles of a craftsman's tools bespeak an absolute simplicity,
the plainest forms affording the greatest range of possibilities for
the user's hand.
That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates
outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the
absence of grace.
