Ok. Tried that and another suggestion and here's what I get:

brooks@84:~> xhost +localhost
localhost being added to access control list
brooks@84:~> su
84:/home/brooks # export DISPLAY=:0.0
84:/home/brooks # wget -q -O - |sh

The Ximian Desktop Installer is a graphical application, and
either you have no DISPLAY variable set or the root user does not
have permission to access your X server. Run 'xhost +localhost'
before becoming root, and make sure that the DISPLAY variable is
set correctly before running the go-ximian script.

Cleaning up temporary files... done.

84:/home/brooks # echo $DISPLAY
