You need to tell us what "not working" actually means. If you get "command not found" errors, then yes, that could be because you don't have the compilers installed and you should install them via the package manager. FYI, I think SuSE 9.1 is several years old and so might not get security updates to packages. If that is the case, it'd probably be a good idea to upgrade to a newer version.

You'll want to look for YaST (Yet another Setup Tool). There's info on how to use it in the SUSE Linux 9.1 user guide.

As for which distribution is best, I'd just go with any of the major distros to be honest.

If this is SUSE 9.1 Personal, then you probably don't have any development tools (the Personal version used to ship without them). Your best bet is to give openSUSE 10.3 a shot.
