Help w/ Redhat 7.1 Graphical Install

I had problems installing Red Hat 7.1 Graphical and followed advise to install in text and was successful.

How can I upgrade to the graphical interface now?

Thanks in advance.

and if you get errors that it can't load, you have to try to reconfigure X by using the Xconfigurator utility.. you may want to look at and maybe redhat's site for a compatibility list of your video card and make sure its supported..
