Welcome to LQ!!
Please use more descriptive thread titles to get quicker and better answers.
First, Ubuntu 7.1 is pretty old---you may want to get a newer version (eg 8.04 or 8.10)
You will want to install the development tools, including the gcc compiler. The package is sometimes called "build-essential" or something similar. Look around in the package manager (Synaptic or possibly Adept).
For WEB development, there are a wide variety of Linux tools available---take a look at the recent "member's choice" awards here at LQ.
