Using aptitude non-interactively

I want to run aptitude in the background and install xserver-xfree86. So I
    aptitude --assume-yes install xserver-xfree86
Then I <Ctrl-Z> and use "bg".

There are two problems:
1. It continues printing the percentage completed.
2. How do I get it to ask the configuration questions at a later time?
