Mandrake 8.2 and compiler tools

I'm trying to run "make", "gcc" and other tools on my linux box and they don't seem to be there. Are they on the CD's?? I couldn't find them. Also, is there a good step-by-step guide somewhere for newbies on how to install these compiler tools?

What mdk 8.2 are you using? because my standard
edition box is missing some crucial things.
Amongst them the gcc-cpp-2.96-0.76 .mdk rpm
that is needed to run gcc.
On cd 1 there are make and gcc rpm's. I got the
missing rpm's from a dvd that came with a magazine
maybe you can get yours at
are you sure all of the mentioned rpm are not installed?
check it; rpm -qa |grep -i nameofonstalledrpm

Yep, you can get whatever you need from rpmfind. But all the development tools are in the Development Group in the package install process.

there are a couple of ways to get them. You can use Software Manager in KDE, or rpmdrake, to install. Or you can do an Update install -- just skip over everything else up to the Package Install step and click on the Development Tools Group. Don't unclick anything else, however.
