Starting with Oracle 8i, I think (the 8.1.x releases) the installer is a
java GUI. You can telnet in and export your display. I have done that.
The only way to do a non-GUI install is to do an unattended install with
some type of "answers file" or something.
I liked the old version that would allow you to chooses curses-based or
GUI. It was *much* faster and much more flexible.
