    Like I said, the solution they provide is very tedious and you may find that once in a while, a program may be missing. For instance, you may find that gnome-terminal does not get pulled in this way. You can always install it later though.

    Isn't it great when the pieces fall into place?

    Cool Resolution

    I have searched high and low for an answer to this very question, and it puzzles me as to why this couldn't be answered. So here are the instructions for Red Hat 6.2 Enterprise 64Bit.

    1. Put the DVD into your DVD drive
    Type this at the command line to mount the disc :
    "mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom && mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom"

    2. Create a dvd repo file
    "vi /etc/yum.repos.d/dvd.repo"

    [Press I to insert]
    [Press Escape & type :wq]

    3. Install X
    "yum groupinstall "X Windows System" Desktop
    or if you perfer KDE
    "yum groupinstall "X Windows System" KDE Desktop

    4. Follow the prompts to complete.

    5. Run X11

    Note: if you are installing Linux Client and not server, make sure you specify the baseurl to be client and not server.
    If 'groupinstall' gives you issues, try to type 'install' instead.
