I think you might be right. I'll check to see if there's a way to tell.
I can't remember if there was. It was very ad-hoc when I installed it.
I know when it was installed to vbox I was exporting a term over ssh. vbox
has this ILO emulation and that was used at first. Then I used the command 
line utilities on the host for managing and restarting the VM, and ssh to
access the vm itself.

ISTR in the emulation that it emulated a text console though. It's the server
version of ubuntu rather than the desktop version. I remember having
difficulties with character repitition over the emulated console.

Having said all that, it would be weird if a server install defaulted to 
graphics mode on bootup! I guess stranger things have happened...
