If using KDE, then KDE control center is what oyu are looking for. It's under preferences in the K menu.

I should have been more specific and I appologize for that. I meant is Fedora able to be edited? I have been doing some browsing on the operating system, but any suggestions on how to edit certain parts of the operating system, such as the menu bar, folder options etc.? I know its done using programming, but is there any documentations or scripts I could use?
Fedora is just a 'flavor' of Linux, and it is not considered as an Operating System by its own.
OS: Linux
Flavor (or Distribution): Fedora

What makes a distribution diferent from others? The colection of applications by default (plus minor diferences in say; directory structure as example)

Those menus you are refering are part of the Desktop Manager; KDE, GNOME, FluxBox, to mention a few.

To customize your Desktop Manager in KDE:
menu > Settings > Control Center

Okay thank you. I do understand the difference between Linux and Fedora. I have another question. I can't seem to find GCC anywhere. Where is located under? Sorry about so many questions, i'm still not use to Fedora. Its much more different from Windows, actually its much more better then windows.

THanks

You need to open a terminal window to enter the commands they suggest. I think KDE puts a terminal window link on the menu bar by default.

No it does not, it puts the printer icon instead. Or so it did.

Just click on the K-menu (the K icon in the bottom left of your screen, where Start would be in Window$). NAvigate to System tools --> Terminal.

Once the terminal opens, don't be scared it doesn't bite.

Type in(line by line, and press enter at the end of every line and do not type the text in ():

su
(you will have to type in your root password here)
which gcc
(this should produce a directory like /usr/bin/gcc or some errors)
(if it produces a directory, you have gcc in that directory)

One other way to find gcc is:
(still in a terminal)
updatedb
locate gcc
(this should show you all the files containing a word gcc)

Well mine has it on the menu panel and I didn't put it there. Maybe it's a Mandrake 10.0 flavored KDE .
no biggie.

Wait a minute? What are you talking about? How does GCC look like? What GCC are you talking about? the GNOME Control Center, or the GNU C Compiler?

I suppose you are talking about the GNOME Control Center (GCC). In that case I can't help you as I am using KDE (much more stable).

I thought you are looking for gcc (the compiler). Just to say, gcc doesn't really look like anything. It is just a text program. The compiler I mean.

Peace!

Yeah I meant the compiler. Isn't it supposed to allow you to use C++ in it? Reason why I ask is because I am pretty good in C++. How do I load it? Which file is the compiler?

gcc does not have a 'look' is just a compiler, meaning; you create your code in 'C' then you invoke gcc to compile your code and create an executable binary file/program.

Thats all it does; convert a text document with "c" code into a binary file so it can be executed.

For code in c++ language you need g++ compiler.

[edit]
You want a GUI to make your proyects? Install "Kdevelop".

Or you can write in Emacs, and compile with g++. Check man g++ for instrucitons. Emacs rules!!! As for GUI, there is Kdevelop..
