Do you mean the compiler? it's available from console using 'gcc' (for C programs) or g++ (for C++) programs. Your brother may also look at integrated development tools (with frontends for compiler, debugger and so on) like Anjuta, Kdevelop.

Yes, after they're installed. The packages you need are: gcc, maybe kdevelop or anjuta. All programs I mentioned are on your installation cds.

It's just a compiler. You write the text code, save it as files, and compile it. You seem to be wanting a nice gui IDE. Try KDevelop or others suggested, or search online.

It's installed. Good. What you need is a C++ code (file with code). Type it into an editor, save, open a terminal, cd to the directory you have the file in and then use g++ this way:
g++ -o progname filename.cpp
It compiles 'filename.cpp' , executable name is 'progname'. Then you can run it using
./progname
