The Question is:

I've got an AlphaStation 250 4/266 with a
DEC VT420 serial console terminal.  Although this system would be DECWindows
 capable if I had a proper VGA monitor, PS/2 KB and mouse, I don't have those
 devices.  Even though I've set the WINDOW_SYSTEM parameter in SYSGEN to 0, I
 get an error at the end
of system startup about "Can't start DECwindows, please set WINDOW_SYSTEM to 1,
 type YES to enter AUTOGEN now..." or something to that effect.  I'd prefer NOT
 to run DECwindows, how can I avoid this automatic behavior in startup?  Thanks!
