Unhappy Compileing programs under mandrake linux 9.2

[exley@localhost hello]$ ls
[exley@localhost hello]$ % cc -g -ohello hello.c
bash: fg: %: no such job
[exley@localhost hello]$ % gcc -g -Wall -ohello hello.c
bash: fg: %: no such job
[exley@localhost hello]$ gcc -g -Wall -ohello hello.c
bash: gcc: command not found
[exley@localhost hello]$ cc -g -ohello hello.c
bash: cc: command not found
[exley@localhost hello]$
Any ideas I'm running mandrake linux 9.2 and trying to learn to program (if i cant compile i think its going to be hard)
thanks ahead of time

When you installed the distribution did you install the developers tools? I think you can install them later by running 'rpmdrake' . Check that out, and also you can do a search in rpmdrake for gcc.
