Installing X and GNOME for CentOS

Today, I was setting up my next laboratory for my course of Network Foundations. There are seven computers with Ubuntu (2) and CentOS(5) as operating systems.

I found that CentOS-based systems did not deploy any graphical user interface and I googled how to install gnome packages and I found this link. It explains how to install the X Window System and the GNOME Desktop Environment. The command is as follows (as root):

# yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment"

Nice, ;-)
