Sorry, but did you read the OP's post?? The X server isn't working, so how can you run a X/Gnome application?

divymohanshorey, unless you've got a VERY specific need for RHEL and/or are paying for support from RedHat, load a different OS. RHEL is for server-class machines, and laptops are much better supported by 'open' distros, like Ubuntu, openSUSE, Mandriva, etc.

Since X isn't working, chances are something got clobbered. If you looked on Google, or on RedHat's knowledgebase, you'd find much on how to configure X, and get it working.
