RH Enterprise 5: GUI login screen

Hi everyone, I have a problem. I just reinstalled RH EL5 on a dell server, and using dells open manage install software.

after the install, it boots up to a command line interface for logging in. I know I can just type startx and it will load up the GUI, but I dont want to have to do that everytime.

how do I change it so it will boot to the GUI log in screen??
