Need halp with rpmbuild command

I need to use "rpmbuild" command but I get "command not found" error. What do I need to install to give me this command. I have only had linux installed for a few days so please give detailed instrucions. I need to not only know which package to get but where to get it from and probably how to install it.

If you don't know how to install rpm packages, I wonder why you'd need rpmbuild, which is as far as I know used to build up rpm packages from source code, to be installed as binaries; so if you don't know how to install rpmbuild you wouldn't know how to install an rpm that's built using it, and I seriously doubt you would even know how to use it..

To get it, use Google or to search the rpm package that contains rpmbuild (the executable). Download it, and double-click it to install. Then read the documentation, then start using it..but what do you need it for?

I might not know how to do much with linux but I can follow instructions. I can install rpms. I tried to show that as I dont know much bout linux I wanted the reply to be as complete as possible without just saying something like google for it.
