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.

I am running Red hat enterprise 5 and trying to install SAMBA when the first error i received was at ./configure
the error was:
SAMBA VERSION: 3.0.28
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
then i checked the error log and this is what i received:
## --------- ##
## Platform. ##
## --------- ##
hostname = Server.techsit.com
uname -m = i686
uname -r = 2.6.18-8.el5xen
uname -s = Linux
uname -v = #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:42:21 EST 2007
Then i thought it had something to to with GCC so when i installed that ./configure it threw out another error and this is what was in that log.
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.
