Evertime i try to run " ./configure " I get this " no accceptable C compiler found in $PATH " I cannot install the development packages from the RH cd. Dosnt a C compiler get installed by default? Should i download a C compiler or what should i do? do i need the devel packages off the RH website?

no you may have wanted to install all the Development section.

are you trying to install an rpm???

if so then you dont ./configure to install and rpm you :
rpm -Uvh name.of.package

if not the you need to install gcc - this can be an effer - you may want ot reinstall - or get some good help from someone with experience. you might give it a try.

Yes, you should get the development packages. It ought to provide gcc (the standard compiler) and most other stuff you'd need to compile, though it depends greatly on the software you're attempting to compile. Most 'configure' scripts that come with source code will tell you what else you may need to compile, so watch for warnings/errors from the configure script; those should lead you towards what additional libraries you might need.
