    Gnome is not installed on servers because it's really not needed, and it can be quite slow to use a GUI over an internet connection, mostly only applies to dialup - but slow dsl speeds could still bog down. Plus X-windows can be quite a security problem, and the data sent over it is not encrypted so it's like using telnet (ie, it's quite possible for hackers to pick up your root password and damage your server).

    You should really learn how to use the commandline for linux and use that. You can do everything from there. If you want a GUI then get a Windows server and use RDC.

    Go on, have a guess
    You could simply use lynx from shell.

    You really should learn to search! If you want to understand a command in Linux, type in:

    man command

    To use lynx (which is also installed on RHE) or the newer elinks , type:

    man lynx
    man elinks

    Hmm, well my RHEL 3 didn't come with lynx... only elinks, and links (which is just a symlink to elinks).
