Erm, my headless server runs gdm just fine. Not surprisingly X does not
start (no keyboard), but I can connect over the network without any

However, you will need to edit /etc/gdm/gdm.conf and do teh following:
1. set [xdcmp]:Enable to true
2. comment out all the lines under [servers]

AFAIK that is all I had to do to get GDM running.
