    It will take longer and is more of a pain, but I'd recommend you try a different distro. This is just my opinion but I think fedora might keep causing you heartache. It comes with all the latest, bleeding edge, software, and as such *might* be a little unstable and difficult to use. I'd recommend something more user friendly for a first time linux user -- SUSE10 is a perfect example of this.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I recommend you stay away from distros like SUSE, Mandriva, Xandros, Linspire et al because they offer non-free packages.

    If you fail to install anything, changing compiler versions will not help you.

    I recommend SuSE also. It's the most user friendly distro for new users that I've found. You can decide for yourself if you want free or non-free packages.

    IMO, http://www.fedorafaq.org is the most crappy and childish(that is it's freenode users) faq ever.
    Stanton-finley's one is real nice one though.

    Well, gcc 4.0.X has enough of gcc developed to install GCC 3.4.4....i should know cause i installed it like that :/

    And it did help because i was able to install MPlayer and a few other programs.

    The Linux learning curve is a big, long one. But it pays off. A guru of Linux can make a tons-faster, more stable system than Windows. But it takes tons of time.
