    Practice makes perfect. Learn to ask the right questions and you will find that the answers aren't that hard.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    You need a compiler and a new operating system.

    what does the OS have to do with anything????

    Start doing some reading, start reading code, start by example... the best way to learn is to look at code, change it, play with it, and see what you can do with it. That... and reading to understand how it works.

    Buy or borrow a good study book on the C language and read it. Don't forget to do all the excersises. And if you don't understand something, don't hesitate to ask someone. When you've read that book, you should study a book on datastructures and algorithms to learn programming.

    Practice, practice, hit your head some more and practice.

    Buy headache tablets

    Practice some more.

    And finally, find the best situation in which you can study....like peace and quiet, cool room or music - whatever helps you think.
    Such is life.
