make command not found?


I'm sorta new to Debian and i'm tryint to run an installer that requieres the make command. Yet it says it's not found... what do I need to download (apt-get install ...) to get the make command to work? It's to install the nvidia nforce drivers to get my sound working, thanks

Yeah i'm in root, logged in to install things, but my make command doesn't exist... It probably doesnt come with debian-base. These distros...

Here is the address: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0283.html
and here is the error part in the installation log:
Code:
-> Building kernel module:
   executing: 'cd ./nvnet; make module SYSSRC=/lib/modules/2.6.7-1-386/build'..
   .
   sh: line 1: make: command not found
-> Error.
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
ERROR: Installation of the network driver has failed.  Please see the file
       '/var/log/nvidia-nforce-installer.log' for details.  You may find
       suggestions on  fixing installation problems in the README available on
       the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
If you want I can post the entire log but I dont think it's necessary. Thanks

Code:
sh: line 1: make: command not found
and makes me feel sad and lonely. Not really, just really tired. Hope someone can help, thanks.

Edit: Nevermind also :P
