Do you have the license and the RedHat network set up?

Doesn't RHEL come with the Gnome desktop by default?---If so, then X-Windows is already there

Yes, we have the license.

I just check and find out that the Gnome it in the repository, but not installed jet. So I wonder if I can simply use "yum install gnome"?
