Install of Informatica 8 on HP 11 requires Xvfb or installling a graphics card...anyway around this?

I want to upgrade Informatica 7.1 to Informatica Powercentre 8 on our database server HP 11 server but I require using Xvfb or a graphics card.  Unfortunately neither option is available to me.
Anyway around this?  I'm guessing just the "DISPLAY" variable needs to be set.
I'm wondering if anyone has seen this before?  The database server is on a a secure segment and that is why neither Xvfb or a graphics card is permitted.

Xvfb is an X virtual frame buffer -- or simply put, a fake graphics card to make the application happy.  By install, do you mean it is installed or you're trying to install it?  Informatica Rev 8 has a console installer.  It's a java application that can be run either in a GUI or at the command line.

The DISPLAY variable should be set when you are running another remote system running X, such as Linux or HPUX, that has a display, or when you are running something like Exceed on Windows.  Just opening Exceed in passive mode then setting your DISPLAY by "export DISPLAY=my.dns.com:0.0" should do it, followed by the java installer.
