issue with installing applications

hey there ppl. im currently new to the Linux Operating System and i have started to install Wine. But when ever i do the commands needed for it to run, i keep getting messages like this:
[scott@localhost wine-20030115]$ ./tools/wineinstall
WINE Installer v0.74

Running configure...

configure: creating cache config.cache
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

Configure failed, aborting install.
[scott@localhost wine-20030115]$
Can someone tell me whats going on? I use Mandrake Linux 9.1. So it'd be great if someone using this Operating System will help me with this problem. Thnx

It seems that u do not have gcc installed on your box. On you cd distribution you will find gcc packages install those then try again.
