Unable to compile my programs

Linux Experts,
Please help......
I am new to linux just started it from yesterday.

I tried to compile an ntfs driver by firing command as :

Console O/P:
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

[root@localhost from neet]# echo $PATH

Also I tried to locate GCC :
[root@localhost xine-lib-1.1.15]# find / -name gcc

I downloaded the latest GCC RPM : gcc-4.1.2-42.el5.i386.rpm
On installing the RPM:
it showed dependency as "needed CPP=4.1.2-42.el5.
Tried to install the cpp rpm but it gave error as :
"1 conflict with file gcc 4.1.2-14"
Tried to earse the rpm gcc 4.1.2-14 but error was "failed Dependency- xorg.*.* needs this file"
My concern is :
1. I need the RPM that will go with the CPP 4.1.2-14.
2. How do I upgarde my gcc to 4.1.2-42.el5.

dependencies and install all the required
