Check your keyboard driver: I think you're using the "dead keys" variant.

If you type this on the command line:

$ system-config-keyboard

you have probably U.S. International selected. Selecting U.S. Enghlish might solve your problem.

You should find a keyboard configuration tool in the menu under System Preferences or something like that.
