This question needs some editing, the question is unclear. And btw.: AIX isn't Linux, it's a flavour of Unix. – Stein G. Strindhaug Oct 20 '11 at 11:26

Honestly, the easiest way, (if you're new to AIX/WAS), is to export your display and install it using the GUI.

So depending on how you have your system setup:

export DISPLAY=<your IP>:0.0


Make sure you have a program running on your client side, like exceed, to create the gui.
