Desktop Environment is not neccessary for Server usage, though. But Sometimes installation or using an application requires Desktop Environment, then build Desktop Environment as follwos.

[1] Install some packages
[root@ns ~]#
yum -y groupinstall "X Window System"

[root@ns ~]#
yum -y groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
[2] Input a command like below after finishing installation of new packages.

startx


You can operate CentOS on GUI like Windows.
