Angry installing gcc package

Hello everybody out there!
a friend of mine has a problem with fedora
he installed the distro in 'workstation mode' but now, he can't do any programming since GCC was not
instlled from cd.
any idea how to change the instlln mode to 'developer ' and run gcc without re-installing the whole os?

the ans is simple!
u don't need to re-install at all!
u simply insert ur boot-cd and pick out gcc and install it as a separate package
easy, isn't it?
forgive me if i'm wrong ,though!

You can just do "yum install gcc" as root. If you want C++ support do "yum install gcc-c++".
