If you can't resolve compile errors, it means that you are definitely not skilled enough in programming to make hacks. Why people keep thinking they can make cheats right after compiling HelloWorld.c?
Also, you shouldn't learn tuts like king orgy said, but read the book kobject suggested - K&R 2nd edition. It's _THE_ book for the C language. Or if you really want to start with C++ (where I agree with kobject that it is not a good language to start with, C is better for this purpose), then read Bjarne Stroustrup - The C++ Programming Language.
Both books are written by designers of the languages, I think that speaks enough for them when it comes to quality.
