@Lucas Aardvark: I don't care that you use Linux, but I don't think it's fair to hate Apple for charging for their products.

comment Mac OS X: how to run GUI apps on a headless machine
I remember this working as well, although you needed sudo access to do it. However, I just tried it with a Leopard machine and while the menu bar appears the main window of the app does not. If all you need is the app to be running (i.e. iTunes for sharing or bittorrent) then this might work.
