I have 2 machines that have RHEL 5.0 installed without GNOME of KDE. They were originally part of another network but have moved them to a new location (IP address and network). I was able to update the registration of these 2 machines and added them to RHN and getting updates.
The problem is I haven't admin Linux for 4 years and would like to install GNOME or KDE but not sure how to download the RPM nor install them so I can use the machines with a graphic interface. I have changed the user/password and can login now using SFTP remotely but need to have them setup to admin locally using GUI.
