I have downloaded the Red Hat Enterprise 6, the file name is rhel-server-6.0-x86_64-dvd.iso.  (3.19Gb)

Try to install it under Hyper-V Window 2008. However, no graphical interface could be enabled. Does anyone have any idea on this ?

Thanks

Hyper-V isn't ideal for Linux, maybe  SUSE could work, but others are not supported. I suggest you try it under VMware (Server, ESXi and Player are free, and the other's you can trial).

Actually RedHat 6.0 install is a little different.  While installing and selecting packages at the beginning, you have to be very careful to pick all GUI packages.  I had to try more than once to get the GUI running.  So spend some time during package selection and make sure to select all the GUI packages.

Yes, works fine on 5 but not on 6. Any idea which package(s) should I need to pick ?

You have to go to Customize package selection.

You should see a GUI screen.  On the left side of the window, you should see the following

Desktop Environments
Applications
Development
Servers
Base Systems
Languages


When I said you have to be careful, I mean in the first option "Desktop Environments", go to each choice and select everything.  Let me know how it goes.

If you think you did it already, you can try starting at run level 5.

You can try
startx

You can modify /etc/inittab to start at run level 5.
