Later when I'm at that computer's console I will try to install the "games" distribution from sysinstall (unless someone demonstrates a simple way for me to proceed remotely).
Sysinstall can easily be run remotely; it has a "post install" "configure" option that is used for situation such as this. IIRC, the option you'll want is "select additional distribution sets". Simply "shell in" with ssh from your remote computer, su to root, and run sysinstall at your shell prompt.
Thanks to you all for helping an 'all thumbs' newb.
