Installing Gnome on a Headless Server

Hi,

I'm new to Unix and used Gnome on a Sun Server which has the video card, keyboard, and mouse installed.  I have another server which I purchased on E-Bay to learn about Solaris and installed the latest Sun OS version 10 on it.  This server is a headless 440.  Can I install Gnome on it and run the GUI thorugh VNC or some type of other remote application?

Thanks,
Byd

The VNC/Gnome combo requires no visual element with the machine - it can be entirely performed remotely.  There's a reasonable overview of all the steps for Sun OS over at http://developers.sun.com/sunstudio/articles/vnc.html .
