Normally with Servers you log onto them remotely and use another workstation to view the unit and how it is working. Instead of using a LCD connector which I don't think you can mange with a NB you should be ale to just connect to the network and log onto the server with the Remote Assistance option and work away quite happily that way. If it's not currently connection to the Network you can always steal a monitor temporally to see what is going on and when you have finished return the monitor to wherever you picked it up from. Generally speaking NB's have a different video connection for their monitors to a conventional LCD/TFT monitor.
