Let us know what distro you're using and put it in you
personal info thingy: -|
If you're using redhat,mandy or suse, you should search for the gcc rpm on the discs.
For slack: search the disc for gcc.something.tgz
For debian, simply apt-get install gcc
Then after installing do in emacs: tools -> compile
alrighty i got this thing to teach me how to do it and i was doing it and it was working and al the little things they said to look for were checking out and stuff but today when i was trying to compile the .wma plugin it said this error: installation or coniguration problem: C++ compiler cannot create executables.
any idea what i did wrong....

C'mon, do you seriously think anyone can understand this?

Post your questions here, others can learn from it.
Everyone here will be glad to help you but you have to be more specific on your problem.
As far as I see your problem is that your RH doesn't have a compiler or the wrong one installed. So search for an rpm on your discs that begins with gcc and install it using rpm -ivh <rpmname>.
Then you'll have the correct compiler on your system and you can start compiling stuff
