Thank you!

Xfb sounds like it would work for me. Basically I need something that will
run continuously in the background (daemon-like), rather than during a VNC
session. I'll get started on compiling from source to test it out.

Where would I find the "dummy" or "void" driver options to try before I
reinstall everything?
