Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Open up yast and in software you will see a module called "Change source of installation". Load this up.
Add a new FTP source with the server name as "ftp.gwdg.de" and the directory as "linux/suse/ftp.suse.com/suse/i386/9.1"
You could use another mirror here but this one works well for me
Once this has checked the source and added it in yast, go into install and remove software. Search for "make" (The GNU make command). One of these results should be what you are looking for. You are also likely to want packages "gcc", "gcc+". Once these are selected other dependencies such as " libgcc" will be selected.
Hope this is of help
edit: you do need to add the installation source in suse 9.1 personal as for whatever reason they dont include these packages, probs something to do with space i guess
