Your provider should supply you with details about the IP address of the server and give you a username and password to connect with. Chances are that they expect you to connect using ssh or some Windows ssh emulator like putty. If they haven't supplied you with these details then the only people that can help you are those that provided the server in the first place.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

You have given us no idea what you want to do, so it is virtually impossible to offer any specific advice.

If you want to use GUI tools you will need an X server, or use VNC or NX. Alternatively you might use a web interface such as Webmin.

In any case, your provider should not be suppling an obsolete, insecure, and unsupported release, and should be providing at least some guidance. 5.7 is the current release. See the CentOS 5.7 Release Notes for details.
