The original book on C is called "The C Programming Language", although
the language has evolved a bit since that was written. There are
probably better books now. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_programming_language for much more.
 
The free C compiler that almost all free software (Rockbox and Linux,
for starters) is based on is called 'gcc', and can be found at
http://gcc.gnu.org/ . The version of gcc for Microsoft Windows is
bundled in a package called CygWin, at
  http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/ .

Using gcc on Linux would give beginners a better experience, as all of
the C tutorials and sample programs I've seen assume you're using Linux
or some other Linux-like system.
