yes. First, make sure you have all X libraries and gnome installed. Second, make sure your X is configured right by running startx from command line.

If X works fine, edit /etc/inittab, the line that looks like this:

id:3:initdefault:

should be

id:5:initdefault:

and reboot. Note that your default services set will be different in runlevel 5.

instead of startx you can try running kdm, gdm or xdm display managers.
