It seems I always forget something.  Another IDE that is preferrable to Kdevelop
is Designer by Trolltech themselves.  Of course Trolltech is responsible for the
Qt GUI toolkit and libraries.  You can go to their website at www.trolltech.com
and download the 2.2 version.  I run RedHat and they have a qt 2.2 packages
available for it.  If your students are going to need to program GUI interfaces, I
think Designer is much more complete and bug free than Kdevelop.
