My problem arises from the fact that I didn't select 'C development' when
installing, as i figured i wasn't a C programmer (I was doing an FTP install
over ISDN). RH may be advised to change the package description for C
development to 'if you wan't to do _anything_ useful with your system'. We
live and learn. BTW IMHO installing RH Linux is easier than installing
Windows NT, which is great.
