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 running Fedora Core 10 64 bit. I have been trying for some time to watch youtube and other type movies on my computer, but am told all the time I need to install flash 10. I downloaded the flash DVD decoder to my home directory....if that is not correct, I don't understand why. All I know is I needed to install it somewhere.
First off is there a place that type of program should be installed in Linux? Once I did that, I looked at the README file and it says to do ,/configure (then make, then make configure). When I do that I get the error:
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
[root@djclinux64 DVD Decoder]# find / -name gcc
Is the fix for this as simple as adding the /usr/libexec/gcc to my $PATH? Is gcc really installed on my computer?
Thanks frankbell.......that IS what I downloaded and I copied it into the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory and it still doesn't work. Like I said, it has a README file that says I have to do the ./configure, make and make install.
