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'm sorry, but I can't seem to find and install a C compiler.
If RedHat 8.0 comes with one, where is it hidden?
I'm trying to install the Nvidia driver for my GF 3 Ti 200, but I'm required to "make" some files, and I need a C compiler for that.
I've been looking for days, and I've searched these forums, but apparently, I'm not looking in the right place, because I haven't found anything yet. (I found the Intel compiler, and almost installed it, but I couldn't get the license to work. ) If anyone can point me to a simple-to-install one (i.e. an .rpm or something), or a walkthrough that is intended for a Linux-newbie, it would be much appreciated.
I understand that you have not used linux that much.
(So that's why I am replying to this post).
There is gcc which is the gnu c compiler.
Tell me what happens when you type the command make where the makefile is located?
First tell me what did you do?
Did you edited the configure file or
you exported CC
it should return something like
instead of only gcc
/usr/bin/gcc(or whatever whereis gcc returns)
Okay, thanks! I installed all of the gcc rpms,
but I'm still getting an error message: Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
Created "Makefile" in /root using "mt-frag"
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `as': No such file or directory
*** The command 'gcc -o conftest -O2 -W -Wall conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.
And I'm not quite sure why it thinks I have an i686 - I'm running an Athlon XP 1700+. not a recent Pentium.
