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.

yet I do have gcc installed
[jeremy@OzzyLinux amsn-0.98.1]$ sudo yum install gcc
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package gcc-4.4.2-7.fc12.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
I think I had this problem before but I just reinstalled to fix it. Any ideas that could be causing this? I tried removing and reinstalling gcc but that didn't seem to resolve it. I'm running Fedora 12.
