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 new to Linux and I am attempting to teach myself to write code in C++. I am doing this with various books which are clear in their teaching of code writing, but seem to assume I already know how to use a compiler.
I am doing the practice exericises using the KDevelop/C++ compiler and can't seem to work it out. The manual isn't much help.
My question is: Can anyone tell me some very very basic things?
1. Once I have written the code and saved it *.cpp in a text editor, what is the first three or four specific steps to do in the compiler before I try to build it?
2. Is there a free compiler available that is written for beginning learners like me that I could use, which may be more straightforward while I am learning?
Learning this without a classroom environment is more difficult than I thought it would be, but I think I could do it if I can work this darn compiler out.
Any help very much appreciated.
