Configure Problems

I am new to linux. I thought I would give it a go as it would be a good alternative to windows and its free.
Things are going ok and I like it alot. The distro I have installed is Redhat 7.3.

This is my first attempt at installing a programme(tar.gz). I have extracted the file into a temporary folder and followed the instructions in the readme file.
when I try to configure this the the message I get:

[root@localhost Jason]# cd /home/Jason/tempfiles/dillo-0.6.6/
[root@localhost dillo-0.6.6]# ./configure
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
[root@localhost dillo-0.6.6]#

Obviously a few things are missing here. Does anybody have any tips on what I can do next.
I am a complete newbie and any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to LQ, Psychobilly.

It is saying that you don't have a compiler installed. I can't remember if there's a nice util to install stuff from your CDs (such as rpmdrake for Mandy), but you need to install the GCC stuff.

HTH a little.

With RH, you should just pop in the CD and it will ask you if you want to run the program (gnorpm I think). If you are not root, then it will ask you for the pw.
