Installing X on a server is overkill, unless you plan on staring at the
monitor all day. OTOH, FreeBSD also makes for a nice desktop system.
Better activate sshd (Secure Shell daemon) and log into the machine from
your desktop, e.g. with 'putty'. That way you can run commands like
'systat -vmstat' remotely. You can also view the logfiles by logging in
If you are logged in you can also modify syslog.conf to have the system
write you a message whenever certain types of error occur. You could
even have the system e-mail you the error messages (unless the e-mail
isn't working :-)
