Question X Windows System Missing

I had a RH server built for me and it seems to be missing the X windows system, and KDE/ GNOME desktop installation

How can I do this myself? Are there RPMs that will install it ?

Get your hands on the cd's if you don't have them and install away.

It is a remote server... in England.
I have to figure out how to get this done using only an ssh session and hummingbird.

ok, but do you have the cd's ?
if so, you could install a simple ftp-server ( i once used " pureftp " for that ) on your own box ( or the remote by using ssh ).
then use the ftp-server to get all the files there, and install them using ssh.

Why would you want X windows on a remote server? Isn't that going to be horribly slow if the server is in the UK and your display is in the US?
