How to install x-window system

Hi, I'm not very confident with Red Hat, rpm, yum, etc..

What are the packages I need to obtain a graphical environment (fluxbox will be sufficient to me)?
p.s. OS is CentOS. Does yum manage itself dependencies between packages?
Thanks in advance

If you installed CentOS, I would have assumed that it installed X automatically. Otherwise, just open the package manager (GUI) and search for "xorg" and "fluxbox".
