Where/How Installing GCC?
I installed PCLinuxOS today but cannot find anywhere to download the complete GCC tools. I found sources gut that is useless without having GCC in the first place.
How do I download GCC binaries with all libraries/includes and how do i install it? Linux is a real PITA. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance guys.

You can install gcc by doing
#apt-get update #apt-get install gcc

Ok, bear with me as the only time I used Linux was about 10 years ago on the PowerPC platform. Consider me a newb.
Do I type those commands in the terminal? And is that all I need to type and it will download/install it automatically or what?

Yes. Type those commands in Terminal and it will download/install packages for you. You must have root privileges to execute those commands.

Alright, I will try it. I just installed KNOPPIX but I can't get the internet working now. Once I figure that out I will run those commands.

Well, it worked. I now have GCC on KNOPPIX. And I did get the internet working. However, I wish it were easier to setup the internet on Linux like it is on Windows and MacOS.

It depends on your distro, hardware and internet connection. Its fairly simple to setup wired connections. Wireless connections are a different matter because most use proprietary chipsets.

If you have a wired connection, then it shouldn't be too complicated. Usually the setup is done interactively during setting or automatically when you are running from a live cd. Since you are using PCLinuxOS, it should be a matter of running the control center, go to the networking section and choose the option to setup a new connection.
