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.

LOL, here I am... downloading the file, and then when I unpack it Im thinking.. wait. Don't I need to compile this? How do I do that when this is the compiler!?!?! I came back here see what was going on and then I saw those posts.
anyway, no hard feelings, it was pretty funny when I realized it.
ok, I found the file on the second cd, and it's (thankfully) an rpm, but when I try to run it, it says it's checking for package dependencies and shows a staus bar, but when the bar runs out, it just sort of gives up. Nothing happens
gcc-c++-3.2.2-5.i386.rpm wont run because it needs libstdc++-devel-3.3.1-6 libstdc++-devel-3.3.1-6.i386.rpm wont run because it needs libstdc++-3.3.1-6 libstdc++-3.3.1-6.i386.rpm wont run because it needs libgcc_s.so.1(GCC_3.3)
I'm not sure where to get that last file, but a hunch I have is that it's in this: libgcc-3.3.1-1.i386.rpm
however that won't run do to this error message: file /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 from install of libgcc-3.3.1-1 conflicts with file from package
Any suggestions? is there an rpm somewhere that maybe... I dont know... includes ALL of the files it requires to be installed?
nope, I had to find them on RPM search... maybe some of the RPMs on the disk contain the files that I need, but I have no way of knowing.. also, I dont know how to rpm everything at once off the disk, and even if I did, I wouldn't want everything on the disk taking up my drive with stuff Ill never use... what did you do to get a compiler on your system? Did you have to go through this? did it get installed with the OS? what am I doing wrong here...
btw.. continuing this neverending chain of RPMs leads me (perhaps not too surprisingly) to find out that the end file that is required, requires one of the earlier files that depends on it. It's some big wacky loop of neverending headaches and logical impossibility...
