    So for the first lesson, to learn how to use a command, use 'man' followed by the command you wish to learn about. In this case 'man emerge' will tell you how to use it.

    As far as finding the package you wish to install using emerge. If you check the man page, you'll see the --search tag allows you to seach for packages. As you are looking for the gcc package do: emerge --search "gcc". Find the package you want and type emerge <package name>.

    Good luck.

    Oh yeah, google is your friend.

        For linux problems, you'll probably get better results if you do your searches at:
