"Converting it to graphical mode" is done quickest by telling it "startx"
When you install in text mode it installs only the Gnome desktop. That should start when you tell it startx. If it successfully starts Gnome, then open the text configuration file /etc/initab and change it to always start in run level 5 by changing this line:
Then if you want to work in KDE you will have to install it.
Start a terminal, then tell it su to become root, then yum install yumex.
Then tell it yumex, and the yum extender will graphically allow you to install KDE and anything else you want.
