I have no problem using talkingarch linux that way but have a monitor 
attached now.  That particular flavor of linux will operate with or 
without a monitor.  Others I have tried aren't nearly so reasonable.  If 
you have another usb port available, you could get a monitor that will 
connect by usb or any of the other connectors like dvi or vga or hdmi 
and get an adapter for usb and your connection type and then be able to 
attach a monitor anyway.  Another possibility that I suggest you have 
checked out in a shop if the machine has a single usb port is to buy a 
usb hub too and attach the hub to the computer then attach the keyboard 
and monitor to the hub.  Real good to make certain it works before 
buying it though.
