In addition, my linux cannot download any file from outside through internet. Therefore I cannot use "up2date php_gd" or yum install command. Please help me with the download on direct file using my PC running window. Thanks a lot.

DLL files are Windows library files. They do not work on Unix systems (natively). Unix systems use .so files for a similar purpose.

I don't know where you can find valid .so files to match your PHP version, but to use one you would download it, put it in an accessible directory somewhere, and add a line to the php.ini file to enable it. That line should look something like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. extension=/path/to/extension/
You can also enable extensions by re-compiling PHP from source, and including the extension specific parameter in the ./configure command.
See GD Installation in the manual for details.
