if it's not installing it then you must have not told the installer to install it. you can just run "yum groupinstall Desktop" to install it afterwards if need be.

CentOS 6 is now available. But if you must have 5.5 for some reason, you need to tell us what happens if you give the command "startx". It may be that something is preventing the GUI from running.
