How do you determine what's in your path

I have Fedora Core 6 and use KDE.

I tried to install a new graphics driver and in an error message it said it couldn't locate file cc. Then it said maybe cc isn't in your path. How can determine what's in your path, also, how would you include the path to a certain file in your path?

To see your PATH:
echo $PATH
To add something (temp):
export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/cc
Most likely you don't have gcc package installed though, usually the PATH is correct but the package is missing.

You probably need to install gcc and g++.
