'make' doesn't work with my Zipslack


Hi,
I (newbie) have a Slackware 9.0 Zipslack with an 2.4.20 Kernel and would like to install the 'Intel® MD563X-HaM V.92 chipset' driver for my PCMCIA modem. The installing README states:

Prerequisites:
1. root access
2. bash shell to run install scripts
3. a HaM modem
4. KERNEL SOURCE HEADERS FOR THE KERNEL YOU ARE RUNNING
(found on your distribution's CD)

6 steps to install
1. login as ROOT
2. extract the archive into a directory with "tar -zxvf <archivename>.tgz"
3. cd into the directory it created.
4. Type: make clean
5. Type: make ham
6. Type: make install

The installation script has been designed for the following distributions
release versions
mandrake-release
SuSE-release
redhat-release
debian_version (including Corel)
slackware-version
conectiva-version
bluepoint-release

Unfortunately, after having done steps 1., 2. and 3., typing 'make' results as an unknown bash command. Does this mean that I won't be able to run install scripts?

Is their any solution?
Thanks in advance

Corado

You're probably missing gcc

Thank you!
I am trying to get and install it.
Is it possible that the 'make' utility could suffice?
