    Changing user login to GUI

    I know this is a major newbie question, but how do I change Red Hat Linux 8.0 to where it uses a graphical login instead of the normal login? My previous version was set for the normal text-based login and the upgrade to 8.0 inherited it. I want to switch to the graphicalk login. Thanks for your help....
