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 trying to compile php but I receive an error saying that error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
and the same goes for gcc. I thought that there was a default compiler when I installed RedHat? If not, how do I install a compiler if I can't compile the source from gnu's gcc. Also, the other problem is that I do not have access to the cd's as I am across the country from my server. So my question is how do I install either cc or gcc and where can I download the files needed to do this.
Have you tried using the Package Manager? Look under Servers -> Web Server and click on the optional packages button and you'll find PHP. You can also add the C compiler under development tools. It's so easy a caveman can do it. No offense, just always wanted to say that.
I am at a remote location so I do not have access to the terminal itself except via ssh otherwise I would but I can't and I don't have the cds with the rpms to even copy them to the server, oh and I can't run up2date because we are waiting for a license for it. so back to yum...

Ahh, making it a little more difficult. Unfortunately pirut does not have a command line interface that I know of. I don't have RHEL 4 so I can't tell you what http address to get packages from. However, I've run RHL in the past and I do have a few suggestions. Do you have this server registered on the Red Hat Network? If so, you can login to https://rhn.redhat.com and perform your maintenance remotely. It's kind of neat how they set this up. There is a daemon that runs on the server that checks in with RHN periodically to see if there is anything to do. As an admin you can schedule tasks such as adding/removing packages or updating the system using the website. When the server checks in it will do everything you've scheduled. Only drawback is that it doesn't happen immediately. I believe the daemon name is rhnsd. I'm not sure if that is still the same or not.
The main problem is figuring out where the RHEL 4 repositories are so you can get yum. I don't have access to that.
Sorry about my last. Read the part about being at a remote location and having to use ssh and just started typing. Just thought of another option, but I'm not sure if you want to go this direction. RHEL4 was based on FC3. If you are under pressure to get this done then you could try using the PHP rpm from there.
