Not easily. But you can in fact ignore it, the brakes will still function, just much harder to stop.
Cars with Power Brakes have special pedals and brackets designed to work with a power brake booster. removing the booster and replacing with a simple direct master usually wont even bolt up easily, but the pedal height and positioning for connection usually is not compatible without modification and should be replaced.

96 ford taurus breaks are hard but no breaks

sounds like the brake booster failed ! or the vacuum line to booster. also check for a bad check valve at the booster hose where it goes into booster.

1986 mercury cougar break problems.It sounds like there is air in the breaks so they told me i had to "bleed the breaks." I most recently heard that now it could be a bigger problem involving the break...

If the peddle is really hard then it sounds like the booster but the hose the goes to the booster has a check valve it if it fails it can cause the same problem. If you here air when you step on the brake then the booster may have failed inside.

1986 Ford E-150 Brake line problem

when you bleed the brakes start from the p/s rear then d/s and so on make sure to crack the bleed screw and not the bleed nut also check the brake booster for correct movement thats what opens the pistons on the master cylinder

Brakes brake pedal is hard to push

Chk. to see if you got vacume to break booster, If there is than i would say the booster is bad. When you have to push hard on break peddel means either the booster is bad or there is no vacume to booster. I really don't understand the secound part of your question, Do you mean there are no bleeders on the rear breaks? or you can't get fluid to bleeders in the rear? If you can't get any fluid to the rear breaks, you could have a master cyl. problem too.
