First, spell your words out.

Explain what you mean by "illegal instruction"?? What's the EXACT error message you're getting? Has the GUI ever worked on this box, or are you trying to install it now? And did you check Google, since this:

http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/De...n-US/ch-x.html

has details on how to configure X to work. Since you're getting an X display error, chances are you've got it set up, but not configured. Run the configuration tool, per the instructions on that link.

yes please post your xorg log file in /etc/X11/

also be sure xorg is configure with the correct driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If xorg isn't install and when you ran that command to install it. Please post more output. Also you have to be on a privilaged user either by using sudo if setup or as root to install with yum.

Try yum install "X window system". The cases are important and it works for me. Also to use GUI you will need to install either Gnome or KDE as well. Both are available as group install.
See This Link for how to do it.
