Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Haven't tried with other software, but here is what I know
In the bash Shell: "info" nor "help" nor "man" knows about the command.
AS I am running SuSE 8.2 on a Laptop with limited hardrive space I chose the packages to keep the install down to a reasonable size.
Do you know which package(s) I need to have installed for this command ?
bingo. You have to have GNU make installed. As far as what all will be required, you'll need to find someone familiar with the SUSE install packages. I can however tell you what would need installed piece by piece, so maybe you can match this up with the correct suse pkg.
A few of these I'm not 100% sure of, but I included them rather than leave an important one out. The naming convention is for Slackware 9.x , but it should be very close to the generic name and the suse specific name. Perl, Python, JDK, NASM and KDE/GTK stuff is left out of this list. If you want to be able to compile anything and everything, install the latest versions of those as well.
I wish i had an easy fix for you, but this is the best I can think of.
Sorry about double posting, I just didn't want this to get lost in the above jungle post I made.
i did think of an easy fix. Most gkrellm2 plugins don't use a configure script, so someone running the same version of Suse and gkrellm could compile the plugins and send you the .so files for you to pop in the plugin directory. (Just tried this between 2 slack9 machines without a hitch). However if you have a need for more software on your laptop, you may be better off trying to get GNU make and compilers on it.
