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

Like I said before, tell us what distro you're using, you don't have to compile a compiler, there are prepacked binaries for your distro available. But you have to tell us which distro you're running.

If you're using redhat,mandy or suse, you should search for the gcc rpm on the discs.
rpm -ivh <rpmname>
that will install gcc on your system

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
