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.

I am trying to install a .tar package. I am following the instructions:
./configure --prefix=/usr --noninteractive \
I type this into the command line, and the following results:
Configuring TIFF Software v3.6.1
If configure does the wrong thing, check the file config.log for
information that may help you understand what went wrong.
Reading site-wide parameters from ./config.site.
Do they really still make i686-pc-linux-gnu systems?!
Using /usr/bin/gcc for a C compiler (use -with-CC=compilername to override).
Looks like /usr/bin/gcc supports the -g option.
Using "-g" for C compiler options.
No make located in the search path.
There was no make program in the restricted search used by this script
If make is in a non-standard location set the MAKE environment variable
to the pathname of the appropriate program.
configure: Unrecoverable error! Once you've corrected the problem rerun this script.
linux:/tmp/kde-tim/tiff-v3.6.1 # make
bash: make: command not found
Why cannot the MAKE command be found? I tried "man make" and nothing came up.
