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
[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.
