installing make from a gcc rpm (yea i know im a n00b)

ok heres the deal i downloaded the gcc rpm from place b/c i needed it to install my nvidia drivers. but when i try to run the driver installation program i get an error message saying that i havent installed make. and I am baffled as to how to install make. i've used make in the past but never had to install it. I've googled my heart out and found nothing. any point in the right direction would be awesome
