I really don't want to have to re-install, as everything is working. Yet having a GUI does speed things up! If anyone here can point me in the right direction I would be in their debt.

I dont have fedora so i dont know the exact install group that provides the X server. You can find that by running
yum grouplist
On centos it is "X Window System" and either "KDE (K Desktop Environment)" or "GNOME Desktop Environment"

After you have confirmed the group name with yum grouplist you can then install like this
yum group install "X Window System"
yum group install "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"
