Lots of help needed for Mandrake(isa ethernet, kernel, gcc, networking)

I am trying to alot of things in Mandrake 9.0 involving installing/updating gcc, compiling the kernel for the first time so that i can have access to the src, installing and configuring an isa ethernet card which i have no idea how to identify, and configuring this box to be a firewall router for a network.

When i try to compile gcc i get this error:
#Configuring for a i586-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
#Created "Makefile" in /home/duhasst0/Desktop/gcc-3.3.3 using "mt-frag"
#./configure: line 8: cc: command not found
#*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
#*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

Also with the kernel i get this message when i do a "make menuconfig"
# make menuconfig
make: *** Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time in the future (2004-03-10 21:55:35 > 1999-12-26 00:59:12)
make[1]: *** Warning: File `scripts/Makefile.lib' has modification time in the future (2004-03-10 21:55:27 > 1999-12-26 00:59:12)
HOSTCC scripts/fixdep
/bin/sh: line 1: gcc: command not found
make[1]: *** [scripts/fixdep] Error 127
make: *** [scripts/fixdep] Error 2

Since i can't get gcc installed i guess i can't do anything with the kernel and with out being able to do that i can't mess with the isa card at all. Pretty much im sure that you could figure out that i wouldn't be able to do anything with networking period so i am at a lose. If any one could help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for any and all help.

this may be a wild guess, but it seems you have a clock problem.
set your system clock to UTC, verify current accuracy with ~#: /usr/sbin/ntpdate
download & compile, or install MDK-rpm of your gcc, kernel, and anything else you've added in new AFTER your clock is set.
now your system, your files, your newly installed compiling environment and subsequently your developed kernel and drivers will all be set to the same time, and won't whine about something being created in the "future".
luck --O.

You will want to install the gcc compiler from the rpm package.

Just think about it, If you don't have the C compiler installed, what are
you going to compile it with.
