Hi and welcome to LQ.

Yes GCC is a C compiler for Linux, Unix, Windows etc. Most distros include it in their software repositories, so can you let us know what Linux distribution you are using.

Which distro are you using. You should just be able to install it as you would any other package. ( Please put your distro in your user profile )
Also install the binutils and glibc-devel packages. Binutils will include things like the loader (ld). Glibc-devel will provide the standard headers you need.

Have a look at and also check for your distribution's package manager. On Fedora that would be "Add/Remove Software' from the Applications menu.
