I destroyed my Gnome desktop when Add/Remove crashed. I managed to get most of it back by getting a cmd line and logging in as root, then
yum install *gdm* *gnome*
didn't quite get everything, but got most things back

What distro are you using? The reason I ask is that I also have repaired my gnome desktop after breaking it, and if we know which distro you are running we can help provide the correct cli commands. For instance I broke gnome under Debian, so from the command line as root I ran:

# apt-get --purge remove gnome-panel gdm
# apt-get install gnome-panel gdm

Now with this, I lost all settings and had to add all of the customized gnome settings because it completely removed gnome and then reinstalled a fresh version. But it did completely fix it.

hth,

The equivalent command for yum would be:

yum groupremove "GNOME Desktop Environment"

yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

I am not a Red Hat guy I'm a debain user, so I am limited in what help I can provide. I assume that RH boots to a command line? If so, type:

startx

and tell me what happens.
