Depends on how long ones arms are.

I can imagine copying disk contents a long distance, but is there a
way to actually run the installer, on a live machine, over ssh?  Or do
I not need to: just mess with the partitioning by hand, copy files,
and set tweak grub/menu.txt?

-kb, the Kent who finds the groady details of how a Linux box boots
easier to understand than the one-time mystery of what installers do.
