Hi!  I tried this (I had to use xhost first on my local machine), and 
it sort of works.  I get a lot of errors about fonts, and the Oracle 
installer keeps throwing various java exceptions and not doing 
anything, but I don't know if that's because of problems with the 
installer or the X connection.  The font errors I get are:

	Font specified in not found 

if you have any idea what I'm missing that would solve this...

Thanks muchly,
