Welcome to the forums!

If you installed Red Hat server edition on server hardware then there is no GUI. Servers are administered through the BASH shell (terminal commands). If you have never used Linux/Red Hat before then start by reading the excellent documentation they've provided with your subscription.

What is your goal with Red Hat? What are you trying to accomplish, what is the purpose of your server?

If you really want to add a GUI to the server, see http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...gui-login.html, otherwise you'll have to go into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and edit the relevant file(s). See the rest of that manual http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html
