This has been asked (and answered) MANY times on this site...a quick search will bring up lots of answers. This is also covered on Oracle's knowledgebase, and in RedHat's knowledegebase...since you're paying for these two commercial products, you have access to them and their tech support lines, and can get assistance quicker that way.
You say nothing about how you're running this, in what environment, or give details about the hardware/network, but your local workstation needs to be running an X server (or X server emulator), and allow incoming X connections from your Oracle server. Once you do that, the installer should come right up. You can also install via text-mode, and don't need a GUI.
