"what should i do now to install everything needed to run KDE or GNOME"

I know how to do this in SuSE and Red Hat probably works in a similar way.

Boot your Red Hat install CD. One option should be a way to update an existing Red Hat system without doing a complete reinstall. Use this option to install Gnome and/or KDE.
