What problems are you having? Does /usr/bin/gcc even exist on your system? If not, chances are that you didn't install the development packages when you installed your system. You will be able to find the gcc packages on your installation CDs, or you can install them via apt-get or yum, if you have those set up.

go to the start menu (under the red fedora) and go to either system settings or system configuration (check both of them) and select "Add/Remove Applications". This will run the menu similar to the one in the install program, and allow you to add or remove programs. Go down the sections to the development section. Pick the appropriate sets or application and then click update. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE YOUR CDs PRIOR TO DOING THIS. It will then ask of the appropriate cds. Let it run and enjoy.

as root type which gcc and which perl.

If those turn up nothing, then you need to download and install them.
