you can get TFT displays that come in 1U rackmount trays, they slide out then
pop up to give a key/monitor pair. You may also want to investigate VNC (or
other things along the same lines) to use the display over a lan connection.

If this is linux, you could append "console=ttyS0" to your boot arguments
which will let your serial port be the be the "display", obviously that wont
work for X.
