i am having trouble installing xmms on Mandrake10.2
i have untarred xmms-1.2.10.tar.gz just fine, but the ./configure doesnt finish (i think)
this is the output when i type ./configure

[...@node49-60 xmms-1.2.10]$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for prefix by checking for xmms... no
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

how do i get an acceptable C compiler into $PATH (if thats an actual location) and finish installing xmms

You probably don't have a compiler installed in your system. Standard Linux compiler is GCC. Use urpmi (or any graphical frontend you prefer) to install all gcc packages for your system.
