The built in compiler you are talking about is gcc (C) I know it doesn't have a basic compiler, and i'm pretty sure it doesn't have a pascal compiler either.  Although I think i noticed a "Pascal to C" translating program in installation (called p2c) If that helps any :)

There's Free Pascal (available at http://www.freepascal.org/, RPMs at ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/fpc/dist/Linux/rpm/) as a Turbo Pascal/Object Pascal clone (very capable, as I have heard, but no first hand experience).

There are several BASIC interpreters and/or compilers to be found at freshmeat (http://freshmeat.net/). You can find XBasic (IDE, GUI builderm debugger) at http://www.maxreason.com/software/xbasic/xbasic.html 

Be careful with those links provided by fremsley, SuSE rpm packages may cause problems on Red Hat and vice versa because of differences in file system layout.

Right, that may be a source of trouble. To be safe you can browse those rpm's with mc and install the files under /usr/local/ instead of the original path /usr/ Some programs may not work in a different path, but you will always be able to remove them again.

The source packages are under:

AFAIK, RH does ship with a basic interpreter. Saw it sometime, long ago on my system.
You will have to download the Pascal compiler, though I believe that gcc should have a plugin for that too. (gcc == GNU Compiler Collection, and I remember RMS saying something about Pascal, Lisp, C and C++)
