The following screenshots shows how I installed Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL6) on a virtual machine running in VirtualBox.
This is a very basic installation that I used for development.

Just press enter to start installing:
You should test the media, i.e. press enter:
After a while, you'll be ready to begin; click "Next":
Select whatever language you're comfortable with, I selected to use English:
The keyboard layout should match you physical keyboard:

Disk formatting and partitioning is done, click "Next":
I selected the "Minimal" installation:
Go for a cup of coffee, this will take some time:
Done! Click "Reboot":
The machine should boot and you can now log in and play with your new server.
