Once you've got a working compiler, you can configure and build any source package you wish.
But until then, you can't build anything.
You need to install a *binary* (pre-built) version of GCC before you can go any further.
"yum -x install gcc" is good advice. I can't think of any reason a 32-bit version wouldn't run on your 64-bit OS - try it.
For Novell/Suse, you would use the YaST GUI package manager (instead of the yum command line). I'd be surprised if GCC wasn't easily available right on your installation CD.

The "errno 2" simply means "file doesn't exist".
Most 64-bit OS's (all versions of Windows, and all versions of Linux I've seen) have parallel runtime support, so that you can run either 32-bit or 64-bit executables.
