Linux changes processor values.

For my homework, I had to write a program in C in linux, but it gives the wrong answer. My friend programmed the same program in windows and it works fine. I think it has something to do with how linux makes the processor multiply. Probably a bug in linux? I think linux is uncompatable with my

1) Motherboard (Asus)
2) Processor (Centrino)
3) RAM (60GB)

I think it's hardware related because I just got this computer from the school, I had a Dell before.

Does anyone know if linux should work? I can take screenshots of my hardware manager

Thanks, Lee

How about more information on the program itself, there's no way Linux is changing the way processor does math.
