Where is the Red Hat GUI?

By galahad04 ·
I tried installing Red Hat Linux 7.0 from a CD, but there were some aspects of the installation that really confused me.

For example, when first installing using the CD as a boot CD, I am asked whether I want a text-based or graphical installation. The text-based installation appears to work fine. However what's interesting is that when I choose graphical install, for some reason, the text-based install is launched instead of any graphical/GUI install menu screens.

The most frustrating aspect is that after completing the text-based install, Linux boots up with no problems, but I am put into a text-based login screen and OS environment with no GUI. Also, I have not been able to find a way to launch either the gnome or kde GUI interfaces from here even though I did choose to install them. How do you get to GUI? I thought Red Hat used a GUI interface, so why is Linux booting to a noninteractive command prompt?

If u have problem with X-windows just type Xconfigurator then press enter.

If u want to start X-windows type startx then press enter.

If u want X-windows to auto start during boot type ntsysv then press enter.
