The easiest way is find the gcc packages on your install disks and install it by using your distro's package manager. First type in gcc --version on a command line to see if it's already installed. If you get 'gcc: command not found" or something similar back, hunt for it in your install media. Since you gave us no clue which distro you're using, I can't give much more help than that.

The 7 hours is probably to compile from source, which you can't do anyway if gcc is not installed, and that must be on fairly old slow hardware.

[edit]: saw your last post. gcc doesn't come bundled with SuSE personal edition, you'll need to download the packages off of the SuSE site. Someone here who uses SuSE (I don't) can help you more if you need it.
