Hmm, gcc supports ANSI c if I trust Wikipedia :D. so you should be fine
with the standrad gcc compiler.

I heared a lot of good things about Code::Blocks (www.codeblocks.org)
A full featured C / C ++ IDE based on gcc, but supports differnet modern
compilers (MSVC++, Digital Mars, Borland C++ 5.5, Open Watcom), too.
It can compile code within the IDE and comes with neat features.
Works on Windows and Linux so there is a change you can confince others
(your professor? ;) ) to swich to gcc and Code::Blocks.
Of course all Open Source. :D

Here you find help setting codeblocks up for your distribution:

Hope it helps
