I am a new to Linux. I just installed Red Hat 9.0 without the GUI. It is real hard for me to get around. Is there any way for me to now istall a GUI ? And if there is how ? Thanks.

There is no "gui Linux," Linux is an operating system and HAS several gui's to choose from. Red Hat probably has a set up tool you can use to run setup again and install more packages. I'm certain you don't have to do a complete reinstall.
