          If you have VNC - i think you should be able to have sort of desktop on the box? but may be I'm wrong

          option 1.

          You can create a response file on another box and run installer with ./runInstaller -silent --responseFile /tmp/youresponsefile.rsp
          The response file must be create for the same version of Oracle

          option 2:

          You need to install X Server on you client (where Putty is running), Xming for example
          Enable Connection -> SSH -> X11 -> Enable X11 Forwarding in Putty session's settings

          Connect to EC box using Putty, now it should have X11 redirected on you local box, and run runInstaller
