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.

Hmm.. stick the Red Hat install CD's in and run the redhat-config-packages program. Install the development tools and you'll have the g++ compiler. When you say installing Qt will give you a compiler similar to Visual C++, do you mean an IDE similar to Visual C++??
just write a c/c++ code in your fav. editor (mine is vi/vim) and save the file and go to that file from command file by changing the dir. then type gcc filename.c outputfilename press enter
by the output on the command promt u will find that u have a compiler or not . or do one thing type
# find / -name gc*.*
here if u find gcc then u will have the compiler

Ok, I admit I more familiar with MS windows.
By installing Qt, I can get a c++ compiler quite similar to MS Visual C++?
Qt is not a compiler. It's a library. With the library comes QT Designer, a programs that allows to make GUI for your program easily (you just draw it) and make the code from it. But to compile your program, you'll need gcc/g++. It's command line compiler.
There are also graphical IDEs (they use gcc/g++). Examples: Anjuta, KDevelop. They should be both on your installation cds.
non gui compiler is gcc. You can learn a lot out of it's man pages <man gcc>. You have to specify for which C language you are compiling, BUT if you name your files well, it will know. Ie. "file.c" it knows that it is a regullar C. Let me remember the extension of C++.
I believe it might be this one:
