Subject: Local X-windows display without monitor?

Hi Gurus,
One of our E450's runs an application that requires a local x-windows
session. I have been using a regular monitor for this purpose. I would like
to know if there is any way of simulating an x-windows session without the
need for the monitor? I will be moving the machine soon and would like to
free up some space in the new rack.

If this is not possible, i would like to get a 1U Rackmount LCD
Monitor/Keyboard where the Keyboard has at least Stop-a functionality. Does
anyone currently have such a setup? If so, is it possible to switch between
hosts without killing the X-session?

Thanks in advance, 
I will summarise,
