You don't need gnome desktop on the server to display domU's console.

If you want to have gnome desktop on the server (which is a different
problem altogether), I recommend installing it with yum, and use
something like NX (http://www.nomachine.com/) or xrdp. I find them
easier to setup, plus they can have persistent session much like
Windows remote desktop. This list is probably not a right place to
discuss the details though, so I'll leave it at that.
