CentOS installation in GUI mode to a terminal where you get only text mode

To get GUI mode over vnc, you need to edit the first option and append "linux vnc vncpassword=qwerty" to the line and boot using that.
This will basically start a vnc server on the terminal and you can login to that machine using any vnc viewer with "qwerty" as password.

The need for GUI mode maybe anything - e.g. advanced partitioning options which are not available in text mode.
