I think you are looking for VNC. There is a how-to at the CentOS website for setting up a server.

This will only give me the command line access to all the users. Is there anyway I can get the actual GUI for all the users as in windows ?? – maneeshshetty Jan 20 '12 at 12:43
@maneeshshetty VNC gives GUI access, you have to connect to the VNC server with a VNC client. The client can run on Linux or on Windows. – bandi Jan 20 '12 at 13:06
