Angry Getting Ndiswrapper to "make install"

I have a Linksys WMP54G wireless G PCI card in my desktop computer, and I'm using Fedora Core 3 on my desktop aswell. I've downloaded the latest stable version of Ndiswrapper which is version 0.12. I've also downloaded and succesfully installed the 16K Stack patch which removes the 4k stack bottleneck from Fedora Core. Right now I'm trying to get the "make install" command to actually "make install" Ndiswrapper. But I've had no luck, and I can't seem to find out what the problem is. This is a copy of what happens inside the terminal:

[root@Pheonix ~]# cd /root/ndiswrapper-0.12
[root@Pheonix ndiswrapper-0.12]# make install
make -C driver install
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667.stk16/build SUBDIRS=/root/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver \
              NDISWRAPPER_VERSION=0.12 \
              EXTRA_VERSION= modules
/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667.stk16/build/scripts/ line 11: gcc: command not found
/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667.stk16/build/scripts/ line 12: gcc: command not found
make[2]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667.stk16/build'
     CC [M]  /root/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver/wrapper.o
/bin/sh: gcc: command not found
make[3]: *** [/root/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver/wrapper.o] Error 127
make[2]: ***[_module_/root/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667.stk16/build'
make[1]: *** [default] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver'
make: *** [install] Error 2
[root@Pheonix ndiswrapper-0.12]#
I have no idea what to do...

Oh great penguin God's of! What am I to do!?!?! Give me wisdom ancient one with the Tux l33tness

I'm pretty good at computers I grant you... but when it comes to Linux i'm a complete

Uh, this might be your problem:

/bin/sh: gcc: command not found
Gcc is your compiler. Are all the gcc rpms installed? You won't compile anything w/o the compiler.

Thanks for the quick reply! Hmm... looks like my GCC rpm's aren't installed... Thought Fedora installed it for me already, but I can't find a trace of anything called GCC in /bin and /usr/bin

Now to install... hmm... wonder which disk that would be on.. 1, 2, 3, or 4. I guess I'll try them all

Yep! that was the problem indeed. Just finished installing all the GCC related packages and also just finshed installing Ndiswrapper! Cool!
