Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I try to install the gcc compiler from Redhat 9.0 disc #1 I get the following error
unlocatable package required by
Also does the base package not load the gcc compiler as a default in Redhat 9.0 ?
The standard install does not install a compiler. Go to the menu called "install/remove applications" (if you are using KDE) and enter your root password and scroll down to the bottom and select development applications. That should include everything you need to compile.
You are installing the rpm manually, right? Using "rpm -ivh...." It would be easier if you installed gcc through Redhat's add/remove application. The packages it is looking for are on a different disk (disk 2).
Again, I want to emphasize, that you do not need to install gcc from the command line, in fact, I would not recommend it since you are having these problems. Choose System Settings|Add/Remove Applications from the kmenu, and install it that way. The reason is that the rpm dependency issues will be resolved and you will be prompted for a different disk if it is needed. It is much more simple that installing from the command line.
You are running into a dependency problem. You see at some point after your fresh install of Redhat 9 Krb 5 and Open SSL got updated. So now when you try to install the development libraries it can't find the old packages anymore on your system. Using the Add/Remove Applications won't get around this.
