I ran the install and picked server, So I boot to prompt. Im learning Linux (ive had a dedicated server, so im used to the ssh, but not GUI) and id like to test the graphical version. How do I load the graphical desktop from this server installation? GNOME, GTK, etc are all installed. Is there some command or somethign else I need to install? Thanks,
John

You could log in, then type "startx" to start the X session manually. You could also edit /etc/inittab to make sure the machine starts in the right runlevel. You'll probably switch 3 to 5, IIRC. It's been months since I've had to mess with Fedora (thank God...).

If you wanted to use a GUI, you should've picked desktop install instead of server. If you don't have a gui, use gnome or kde for starters (or if you're feeling spiffy, try xfce or another blackbox gui). I believe you can install gnome by doing "yum install gnome" or something similar.
