Enable xwindows in rhel5.1


I installed rhel 5.1 only with cli support. Now wants to setup xwindows and enable remote desktop.

Appreciate your prompt response in this regards.

run this:

yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

for a remote desktop I would very strongly recommend the free version of NX from nomachine.org

I think that system-config-display is still used in el5. run that to set up the X server.
