i dont know particularly about this linux but , u need not have installed every dependency manually..........
there is a program called apt-get in debian based systems....
there is one in red hat based also (forgot the name :) )

these programs automatically install all the dependencies... try using one of them.....

Nope, no formal training. Just use the net and get some books on various topics from my library. That way too you can learn a lot. Also, many experienced users of the forum can always help you there.
