I did that in the past, installing over ssh. The first and the second time you
log in, you get directions regarding what command to type to start/continue
the installation. I am certain it was like that in 9.3.

Has 10.0 or 10.1 changed that much that you don't get directions of what to do
after logging in with ssh?

BTW, the advantage of VNC is that you can install remotely without the need of
running Linux (MHO). Any VNC capable OS would do. ;)
