That should be "0.0", not "0,0".  If you're running X on the same machine
as the installer, you can simply use "DISPLAY=:0.0".

The first zero is the display number, with 0 being the first one.  If you
start up another X server, it will use ":1.0", etc...  I think the part
after the dot is the display name for multi-headed displays, but don't
quote me on that.

 The dude abides.
