Run it in virtual machine ??? hehehe.

There is no need to add users via console

Anand, first do yum update, and then list all available groups with
Code:
yum grouplist -v | less
and first install
Code:
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
as suggested, and then any other group/package you want.

Also run
Code:
yum install mc
to install Midnight Commander, command line file utility, just like old Norton Commander on DOS.

then go to /etc/inittab and set 18th row to read
Quote:
id:5:initdefault:
Navigate with MC and press <F4> to edit the file then <F2> to save it when you done, and <ESC> 2 times to exit the editor. Then reboot and you should be in GNOME. Then you can use Add/Remove Software for packages and all other Administration options from GUI.

Thanks...
haha, right-click on the image, choose "View Image" (in Firefox), copy the address from the address bar, or right-click the image and checkout Properties.
