Using HDF5 in Linux

I'm a newbie and want to learn about using HDF and how to use it in my C++
program(QT). I downloaded HDF5 SOFTWARE
"hdf5-1.8.9-linux-x86_64-shared.tar.gz". I'm using Fedora 17 x64_86.

I installed it in my /home/hdf directory, I set the path using PATH and LD.
Now I'm trying to compile one of the examples provided using gcc but it says
: "hdf5.h" : no such file or directory.

please help!
thank you
