Linux Red Hat 5 Enterprise installation without X Windows


Is there is a way to install Linux Red Hat 5 Enterprise without X Windows ? We are going to use it as server so we don't need GUI just console.
Thank you

All you have to do is to not to select the GUI... if you install a server edition it will recommend you it self not to install any x-windows ..

Cheers!!

Is there is any hint how to perform custom installation, with possibility to select packages that you want? Currently installation is straight forward, I just setup network, clock - general system information.
