I did the server-with-gui install ... woulda been nice if the installer had mentioned the above requirement.

Bit of a catch-22 ... for my Ubuntu installs, the GUI was immediately available, and I used its interactive options to quickly cofigure a Wifi stick. Should I have plugged that in at initial-install time and configured it using the networking menu in the CentOS installer? (Re. the plugging-in, this mobo has just 2 back-panel USB 2 ports, which are all used in install - kybd, mouse, install USB - but hopefully, unlike the CentOS install USB which needs USB2, my wifi stick can use one of the front-panel USB3 ports.)

Would the "workstation" install type behave more like I'm used to with Ubuntu?
I don't think so, but it might be worth a try -- you should be using workstation??

Try, as per instructions:

dnf grouplist

you should see "Server with GUI" if that concurs with what you have installed,

Since you have Gnome installed, the next thing to do is:

systemctl list-units --type target --all | egrep

systemctl isolate

systemctl list-units --type target --all | egrep

Then do the commands in "Change default target to start RHEL/CentOS 8 Server with GUI at reboot"
