bash: make: command not found


i'm trying to install bzip2 on my debian machine.
when I type the line make -f Makefile-libbz2_so in a root terminal window, I get the response bash: make: command not found. What do I do to get around this?
Many thanks.
Ben

use apt-get to install make:

apt-get update
apt-get install make

you should probably install bzip2 with it also

apt-get

Thanks for that.
How would I install bzip 2 with apt-get?
More to the point, how do I find out what other packages I can install with apt-get? I see it downloads a list of packages to upgrade, but how do I view it?
Thanks again
Ben

as far as bzip try:

apt-get install bzip2

I think there is a gui for apt-get but I don't know anything about it ( my time with debian was brief to say the least)

But the best place to go would be on these forums in the debian specific forum.
go to distrobutions->debian.

I'm sure there are many there who know the ins and outs of apt-get and can get you going.
