So how do I start the cgi installer, or at least get the curses one to work
over ssh?

Login to DragonFly via SSH then run /usr/local/bin/installer. Atleast this was the method a few versions ago.

In terms of the web installer, you would need a web server installed on the ISO that you downloaded. If the binary is not in place then it will be impossible to start the webserver. We used to include thttpd but these days I would much prefer to include lighttpd as its bsd licensed and kicks butt.
