Absolutely. Have Xvnc take the place of Xorg as the X server.

Excuse me, it's my fault, I've set the question ambiguous. Absolutely requires a video card, or absolutely able to work on a headless server? –  Ivan Jul 18 '10 at 4:16

Xvnc does not need a video card for normal operation. In fact, it will ignore it even if one is present, and it can operate in parallel with a normal X server. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 18 '10 at 4:25
