Hi Shannon,

I haven't tried this, but section 2.4 of the manual seems to describe exactly
what you're trying to do (2.4.3 in particular).

Essentially, you need to run gdbserver and the binary on your target machine
(which can be a fairly limited system), while gdb, ddd, and the source are all
on your main machine.

If you don't have the manual, let me know and I'll mail you the PDF or PS file.
