Ver 7 min vs dvd iso


I am trying this out first on VBox, I got minimal installed. I see only my console login, no gui, no startx.

I got xinit install, but I search for xfce4 nothing, nope, I search for fluxbox, I get nothing, nope.

I
Code:
yum search Xorg
I get a list with package names so long, it throws me into a, "I have to write all of that into the command line to get it"?

does anyone know any short cuts, got yas I need to know, anything, before moving on with this and
before I get going on installing this onto my LapTop ( is is going into a quad boot. Replacing Debian/Hydrond - whatever it is call crap, MO) ....?


I am waiting for the CentOS-7-dvd.iso to finish downloading before moving on.

The min install is just a very very basic operating system. There isn't a first boot setup to configure users, networking etc. Just wait for the DVD ISO to finish downloading...
