i dont think its possbile to install gcc then. how can you compile somehting from source if you dont have a source compiler? id asssume youd use cnr, or apt or rpms to install it, but i dont know about this case. i think paypal lets you make a paypal credit card, if youre willing to pay for cnr, then thats the way to go. if not, id suggest getting another distro.

im not 100 percent sure about what i said, so dont go reinstalling a distro right now. see if someone lese can help you. otherwise, just about any distro will work as a webserver.

edit: linspire cant use debian packages AFAIK. i heard they cut out apt, but im not sure if that means .deb too.

actually is it possible that i could install GIMP [something close to photoshop, but its free] or aMule [something like emule but for other platforms & its free]

can i install those 2 programs for linspire without having the need to install gcc or is it not possible again?

i dont know about amule, but i would suggest using hte azureus bittorent client instead because it dosent need to be installed. you just run it from the folder. gimp on the other hand will not work.
