linux install

I just recently installed Redhat linux 7.3 on an old machine and had a question. I had some problems installing and traced them to my sound card. Not wanting to waste time, I selected the smallest download possible (without doing a custom install). I didn't install any of the four optional packages (GNOME, etc.). Now that I finally was able to install, how do I go back and install the GNOME packages and the other optional packages like the games, etc.? Can I do this without having to reinstall the rest of the OS?

Thanks in advance,

Russell

You should be able to pull the RPM's off the Gnome ftp mirror and install.

so there's no way to do it from the RedHat install disks?

Using version 7.2, I have added/updated using the install disk. I booted Install disk 1 and one of the choices is to update current config.

Hammer & Screwdriver redhat 7.2

if you can goto cmos and boot from your cdrom and install it will lead you from there don't like redhat but like mandrake user frinedly sound card works like magic sndconfig if you have a isa card i use freebsd @work but all so use mandrake 8.2 need a 586 x68 processero and 36mb of ram works great and no frezz and crash
