Some things may run without config and some don't. Clearly this is one of them. For crafting one by hand please see the Centos deployment guide and 'man xorg.conf' or run 'system-config-display' as root account user to create one.

many thanks dude! I am going to read it some times before re-asking if I have a doubt!

Thanks again

EDIT:forgot to mention that I am trying to install the GUI in a server ( a VPS really) and canīt tell if it does or not have a vga, most likely it doesnt

Edit2:

...is the right answer. However I'm unsure what the question was. Maybe it's time you share some hardware specs and related problems if any?
