I got a older dual 1.8 ppc, with a 17" cinema monitor.

However after ive install gentoo and is perfectly happy with that,

i cannot boot without a monitor, which is a pain, considering i need to have this G5 placed remotely in a data center

Anyone know how i can boot screen-less?

It looks like it doesn't work on some PowerMacs, benh suggests that it could be a yaboot issue, but I couldn't find any more on the subject.
