I made some progress, but was stuck in the Guest Additions installation.

Following was what I did:
1. in console mode as root.

2. > dhclient eth0
    *this seems enabling the network adapter, since my VM hasn't connected 
to Internet previously.

3. >yum groupinstall "X Window System"
    *this connects to Internet, and install the X Windows package

4. >startx
    * this gave following message:
    ...
    (EE) Failed to load module "vboxvideo" (module does not exist, 0)
    (EE) config/hal: couldn't initialise context : unknown error (null)
    ...

5. I clicked "Devices-->Install Guest Additions...", but I can't find the 
mounted file.
Where should it be ?
