please help me on what to do
as i am new to linux, i am not able to follow things well
It seems odd, but you need an existing C compiler to compile gcc (it's written mostly in C itself). If you have no compiler, you'll need to install ready compiled binaries. You should be able to find a gcc package on your distro's install media. If you're having trouble tell us which diostro (sorry if it's posted and I missed it) and we'll help you further,
On Mandrake, you should install a RPM package from the installation CD, and NOT try to compile it by hand.
Easiest way to do it is open Mandrake Control Center, find an icon for Add/Remove Software, find gcc in the list, select it, and the program will install it for you.
