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 dont use Suse.I tried Open SUse 10 with 5 cd's and it definitely have gcc and g++ etc available in Yats menu.if u missed any cd source check for that,also from suse sites u can get the rpms I believe
It looks like what you found is the gcc libraries, which are installed. You need the actual compiler binary. Try rpmfind.net if you can't locate it anywhere else. If you downloaded a full set of install CDs it should be somewhere on them, too.
The distro I got was from Linux format magazine. Can find any GCC rpms on it. When looking on novell website the distro should have it so bit confusing. when I go to download and install gcc rpms it either errors on yast for install or has multiple conflicts saying needs glib, glibc-devel, cpp-3.3,5-5. Any suggestions ??? Very confused!!

Linux format magazine has made a stupid decision to spread this thingy.
SLICK isn't Novells linux product nor is it really supported by Suse.
"SUPER is a testbed for anything that makes your SUSE Linux OS perform in a different manner than intended in the more stable and enterprise oriented SUSE Linux tree. This can be a speed improvement geared towards the specialised desktop user or an additional feature that is considered too experimental or dangerous by the main SUSE Linux tree."
"SLICK is a single-CD distribution of openSUSE featuring all of SUPER's enhancements, but containing only the base KDE/GNOME desktop and dependent packages."
