red hat gui

How can I remotley view the red hat GUI. I can get xclock to work, so its not a remote display issue. What program can I use to run the desktop? I see gnome in /usr/bin but nothing that launches the GUI. Please help

If you are using SSH with X forwarding, try running "gnome-session" or "startkde".
