ok, here's the scoop.....
I throw myself into projects with little or no knowledge, because I am a "learn by doing" kind of guy.
We just bought a cool little webserver from Advanced Clustering that we're gonna use for maybe serving a small message forum, and storing some digital media, test copy of our library website, etc...
This unit has Redhat 9 installed, and I've used Redhat 7.3 and 8 in the past, but always with a GUI interface (so sue me...I'm an M$ slave, just like most everyone else). The server came pre-installed with a command line interface.
Is there a way to invoke a GUI shell once it boots, or is this something that needs to be run by the boot loader, and could someone explain how (or point me to a tutorial) to get a GUI interface up until I become more comfy-cozy with the command line, without wiping out what is already installed?
I've tried running the install again, and didn't get any options for installing a GUI, and I don't want to blow away any of the important stuff the company may have pre-installed.
