Wine, Compiling Problems, and RH9 SUCKS!

I am a newbie who decided to install RH9. I know now that it is terrible... just about nothing works correctly with it. It seems whenever I try to compile a program from source it NEVER works. I always get some error that doesn't tell me what is wrong. And then a few seconds later it restarts, crashes, or freezes up. I am considering ditching Red Hat for another distro... but before I do I want to see if I can fix it. I am wondering if there is something wrong with the programs which compile programs. How would I check?? I have tried to compile various programs, including MPlayer and Wine and niether work. As far as i know everything is up to date, and I have all patches and updates from RHN installed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What kind of errors are you getting? Do they tell you that you are missing things that are required?

No, they aren't dependency errors.
