Starting GUI on Red Hat server.


Hi,
I have just installed a Red Hat 5 server and can connect to it ok using putty. I need to make a GUI connection, though, so that i can run a web browser etc.
I'm new to linux so could anyone advise on how I could go about doing this?

Thanks,
DJ

you'd need a X client if not connecting from a linux/unix machine to do X forwarding with putty
otherwise vnc or freenx would work.
