Try logging as non-root user (you should have created one during install).
Then, if GUI does not appear, try 'startx'.

Note that if you chose Server install, no GUI is the default.

Basically, do you want a cli server or a GUI desktop install?
You can have a GUI on a server, but its not generally recommended.

You can add the GUI SW by logging in as root and using
Code:
yum groupinstall "General Purpose Desktop"
It will probably ask to install dependencies like "X Window System"; just say yes.
