Need help installing drivers


I have just loaded Ubuntu 8.04 and trying to get a dialup modem to work.
I have tried to install a linuxant driver and am getting an error message:
error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libc6-dev
I went back to their site and I need to have the gcc, make and linux-header packages installed.
Is there any way I can check if these are actually installed.

This is my first foray into Linux so please be gentle.

Type in a terminal:

Quote:
sudo apt-get install build-essentials
That should give you all you need to install software from source.

Sorry, it is:

Quote:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
No "s" at the end. Been a while since I installed it. Welcome to LQ, by the way. Be sure to sign up for the Ubuntu forum as well as it is very active and there is a tremendous amount of information available for modem installation.
