I am trying to setup a mythtv backend on a box without a display.  Of 
consquence, I can only SSH into it.

by doing an ssh -X, I can get an X channel through, which then allows me to 
run mythtv-setup onto my local x display.

But this causes some problems/questions

a) is there anyway to prevent it running full screen
b) I loose the mouse and have to rely soley on the keyboard.  Is that to be 
c) how, with a keyboard, do you make the drop down lists drop down?
