There is a workaround for this. You can perform a silent install which does not require GUI at all. You can do it from the command line.
Please refer to the below link on how to go about performing a silent install.
yes silent install is alternative solution and i did in the past successfully few time during oracle 10g installation on linux servers
but i have to run this using gui since i am making 11g plan on test server ,and same steps will be repeated by other group on production server,so needs to use gui

we have some restrictions using gui on our linux server ,so vnc is restricted
Sys admin recommended using ssh tunelling/xserver
if anyone have idea on this please list steps how i start both at linux server end and on windows client pc
from where i plan to run installation
(do i need to download some software on windows,downloading or installing new software will not be possible
i may need to using existing software /packages supporting gui)

As suggested earlier, you will need an x manager of some kind for this.
You can use Xming or Hummingbird or even Cygwin for this. Just install one of these clients on the Windows machine and you should be able to launch gui through ssh. Ensure that you run the below command as root before launching one of these clients.
Use some x-manager (Xming...) on windows
using putty client to login to the linux server, before logging into the server Enable X11 forwarding (Connection ->SSH->X11->X11 Forwarding (enable checkbox)
login to the server through putty and execute
you should now see XCLOCK screen
If you have a linux desktop, simple solution is
ssh -X username@hostname
will import GUI to the linux desktop
