> 1) Am i correct in installing the C++ compiler?
oink !? that depends on weather u need it or not ?! <ducks>

> 2) Is there some rpm i have missed that is needed for C++ on Linux?
Since u arent getting anymore dependency probs...they r ok i guess.

open GnoRPM...and in languages....choose query on each rpm u wanna know

BTW  why not upgrade to RH 7, and install development packages then ?
although i heard there were some bugs in RH 7 C libs....but they can always
be upgraded. right ?
