I don't think your laptop will work as a hdmi display. It is likely to output a hdmi signal to a display.
Being a LINUX newbie I am not certain, but I think you can edit a config file permit an ethernet (rj45) remote desktop to a windows machine.
I don't know if you can do a first boot to bash using Putty on a windows machine, but it would be worth a try. Especially if you have a little Linux background.
The configurations available in Putty are a lot better to look at than the default hardware connection.

is time to order some hardware so I am looking for recommendations on
what to get and where.
I do not have a handy USB keyboard but that is easy even out here in the
boondocks as long as the big brown truck will come down my gravel
driveway. I do not have a monitor or TV here in the computer room/
radio shack/ library/ guest room but I do have a laptop with HDMI input
if that will work. I am thinking of getting a small LED TV or a monitor
for use in the travel trailer. We are going to build a house this
spring and that will be where we will be living.
