Installing c compiler & make
 
I'm new to Linux.
I've installed Puppy Linux 4.1.2 on an old computer. I noticed pico/nano wasn't around, so I've downloaded it.

But then to get it installed, I need 'make' and a c compiler, so I had to download that too.

To install gcc: "You must have GNU make installed to build GCC."
http://gcc.gnu.org/install/prerequisites.html

And to install 'make' I need a c-compiler. "No acceptable c-compiler found in path"

Could you help me?

Can not you just use the package manager to install whatever you want?

The package i want to install (nano) isn't listed in the package manager; i haven't got internet access on that computer yet (although that could be arranged).
Could I use PETget Package Manager to install programs from USB flash-drive?

Yes. I guess you can do that. You will have to add your cd rom to the repos for that.

Please see the last chapter, "C/C++ compiling"

Puppy has a very simple system for converting into a complete compiler
environment, in which you can run the usual "configure", "make" and
"make install" on a downloaded source package. At least, it's very
simple in the case of running Puppy from live-CD: see web page
Puppy on a CD.

The puppy install cd's I know, contain no packages, are live cd's
with a compressed filesystem = one (two) file(s).
