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.  

Thanks in advance.

The command "yum groupinstall group_name" should resolve your problme.
As an administrator ( root) type :
yum grouplist

first tocheck what's available on RedHatNetwork for your RedHat Enterprise 5

and then type:

                        yum groupinstall  gnome
 
if you want to install GNOME desktop or :
 
                       yum gropuinstall  kde

( or whichever is the groupname  for KDE desktop environment in RHEL 5)

Here's the list of commands you'll need when updatting,upgrading and managing
application software on your RHEL 5.
