    Adding desktop environment to preinstalled linux

    I'm very new to linux.

    I'm using a Fedora Core 2 system for class.

    I'm having to use Fedora Core 2 that was already provided without a graphical environment, and I can't reinstall FC2. How would I add a desktop environment like GNOME to the system?

    You should just be able to do
    yum install gnome
    With FC2 you should already have Gnome though, as Gnome is the default.

    Not sure just how new you are so this may be simplistic and I don't mean to offend. Did you type "startx" at your command prompt once you logged in?
