how to install a C++ Compiler?

Hi.. I need a C++ compiler.. I have done some searching on and found gcc... well i downloaded it, but when i should run ./configure i got this message,,,
retry@linux:~/gcc-3.4.3> ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
./configure: line 2332: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler

So... I need to install the compiler another way? How?
I'm using suse 9.1
