There are basically two ways to do that:

LinuxThreads http://pauillac.inria.fr/~xleroy/linuxthreads/

and

Posix Threads http://centaurus.cs.umass.edu/~wagner/threads_html/tutorial.html

I recommend you use Posix Threads.  It's more portable.

Possibly better still is to use a decent wrapper, like this one:

Not all platforms (Windows in particular) support Posix threading - this gets around that problem.

It also presents a higher level interface (C++ at least) than the standard threading interface.
