I am new to the whole linux scene. I am currently learning to use it on my home system, which i have set up as a dual boot WinXP and RH9 system, because i need it for programming classes. In the labs at school, when you r done with typing in a program, the command to compile is "g++", but when i attempt this with the RH9 i just installed, it says that this does not exist. I was thinking that it would be a standard feature with the os since my college used it. If anyone can tell me how to get this to work, or a different way to compile, i would greatly appreciate it.

Find the rpm on one of the cd's and install it. Not sure which cd it is on, I will look when I get home from work.

i tried installin a rpm labeled gpp-c++-something.rpm, but the compile command that i use at school still wont work. if anyone knows how to get g++ to work and compile programs written in Vi on red hat 9, or what the standard compiler for c++ in Red hat 9 is, i would greatly appreciate any information at all.
