Question how to install & activate the GUI on Redhat 9


I've installed Linux Redhat 9 on a PC.
because of the performance I've first installed it without
any GUI- packages!

Now I want to install them and change to the x-window system.

How can I manage this?
My Installation-CD is not bootable so that I'am not able to
get into the "update sytem" part!

which RPMS Packages should I install
and how can I activate the GUI?

THX to all,

in text mode, run /usr/bin/redhat-config-packages

this will launch a minimal graphical environment that i believe comes preinstalled, then select either gnome or kde
