Unable to locate 'cc' utility in path

I am installing Oracle Financials on Redhat El3.0 and I get the following error "Unable to locate 'cc' utility in path". I figured it has something to do with the compiler, can somebody point me to which compiler version I should download? checked on GNU but could not find it. Also does the Redhat CDs come with compilers?

On my system, /usr/bin/cc is a link to /usr/bin/gcc. It is provided by the gcc package, and I'm betting that the gcc package created the link.

Check if this link exists on your system. Also check that the gcc package is installed.

You could use the command "rpm -q --whatprovides" to check the version your system uses and whether gcc is even installed.

You might also check whether the "gcc-c++" and "glibc" packages are installed:
rpm -q --whatprovides gcc-c++
rpm -q --whatprovides glibc
