C compiler to run on Asus Eee 901

Can anybody help me find a C compiler that I can install on an Eee 901 from a memory stick using apt-get?

If it's Ubuntu or Debian you've got on there, run:
apt-get install build-essential

Are you still using the default Xandros-based distro?

I did successfully install build-essential - think I did it from the Xandros repositories - have you added these?

If you do need to download the package first, and install from memory stick, you can get it from here, and use dpkg -i to install it.
