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.

Hello, I am trying to install the C compiler on my Red Hat 7.2 computer. I read the GNU.GCC page a few times but the install it recomended wouldn't work, I couldn't even get past the "configure" stage. I am using the i386 ver of Redhat with a Pentium 200 MMX and 64 M of Ram. If anyone could tell me where there is some 'newbie' documentation on configuring and building the GCC C Compiler Ver 2.96 I would appreciate it
I have the RPM on my distro CD, however I cannot simply rpm -i it, it says that it needs other files to be installed. Also, after looking at the gnu gcc web page it appears that you have to create an objdir and a srcdir and then configure the dir's or somthing close to that. Is there another C compiler that I can simply unpack and start using? Thanks for your input
compiling new gcc can cause troubles, ie redhat using 2.96 while gcc3.1 + is also available.
Unless you have a strong reason to compile a new one stick with distro version.
and get all dependencies and then rpm
yeah, I think you need header files and a few others, they are all on your CD. I ran into that problem too once, I did what Noerr said, and it works like a charm now. Oh and BTW, you should go for the 3.x one instead of 2.9x since some programs don't like the 2.9x version for some reason.
