Default Linux guide for people who want to do more than point and click. Do you know of one?

I'm such a Linux noob, I don't even know what questions to ask.

Maybe I do. If a person wanted to read a guide about compiling, a sort of "Compiling for Dummies" type of thing, is there a good place to go?

Edit: And if that guide could be put in one place, like a Wiki(I'm going to feel like an ass if someone gives me a Wiki link) that would be fabulous.

I'd suggest you go to either The Linux Documentation Project or to Linux Online they have plenty of the Howto's that cover all aspects of Linux including compiling.

Erm...What language are you compiling? Theres...

gcc = C
g++ = C++
g77 = Fortran 77
gcj = Java

just to name a few. You might also want to look into an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for whatever you're doing. Options include Emacs, Eclipse (mainly for Java, but has C++ plugins), and I'm sure there are others.
