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 trying to install gtk-gnutella for file sharing. Grabbed a tar.gz file from the gnutella site, unpacked it, ran ./configure. The process seemed to go smoothly until I got the following error:
GTK - version >= 1.2.0 found... no
***the gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
***if GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in your path, or set the
*** GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the full path to gtk-config
Configure: error: cannot find GTK: Is gtk-config in path?
OK, so here's the thing -- I have GTK 2.2 installed and it has worked marvelously in various other capacities, so I'm not too comfortable messing with it in any way. BUT there doesn't seem to be a gtk-config file anywhere on my system.
Does that strike anybody as a little bit odd?
What can be done? I really want to be able to share files on gnutella.
I could take the easy way out of this and tell you to hack the configure script...but I won't.
Check the gtk-gnutella website and see if they have any RPMs. If they don't, email them and ask if they know of one. That'd be the easiest way.
Otherwise, you could check out the script and find out why it isn't finding GTK. But, that's not recommended.
Having GTK installed and compiling a GTK program are not the same. Most applications include header files and extra components to allow you to compile new apps. They are typically held in devel packages. See if you have the gtk+-devel-1.2.10-29.1.1.i386.rpm or gtk2-devel-2.4.0-1.i386.rpm. To check run rpm -q gtk2-devel. You get the idea.
OK, now I most definitely know that I have gtk+, gtk2, gtk2-devel, pango, pango-devel, atk, atk-devel all installed -- and I continue to get the same error message upon compiling gtk-gnutella. What's up with this? It's driving me nuts.

the one it is after is gtk+-devel, which you have not listed there.
