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.
