Installing Gnome

I have looked for a guide to help with the installation of Gnome, but i cant find one. What files do i need to install it? (Redhat 7.3)
A step by step guide would be a big help or point me in the right direction.

Red Hat 7.3 uses Gnome 1, which is very old in the tooth. Actually, it's the default desktop environment anyway -- so I'd be surprised if you weren't already running it.

If you want a decent distro that has the latest stable version of Gnome, try Ubuntu: (it's Debian based and very easy to use).
