Download the rpm from rpm.pbone.net. One of the problems with not having make is that you can't compile a make-tarball cause you don't have make....

You sure you dont just need to install some supplied development packages such as AutoMake and gcc?

thanks for the replies. i managed to solve the problem. i found out that suse 9.1 personal edition doesn't include the make packages using the default installation. i downloaded the required rpm packages and it works fine.
