Unhappy **Help** - "no acceptable cc found in $PATH" ?!?

Every time I try installing tar files on my PC it gives me this error.

After I typed ¨./configure¨, this is what I get:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i586-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking build system type... i586-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for -p flag to install... yes
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
...and then it returns to ¨root@localhost¨.

I also tried installing mpg123 and this is what it does:
when I type, "make" it tells me:

root@localhost mpg123]# make
You must specify the system which you want to compile for:

make linux-help Linux more help
make freebsd-help FreeBSD more help
make bsdos-help BSDOS more help
make aix-help AIX more help
make hpux-help HPUX more help
make solaris-help Solaris 2.x more help
make dec-help DEC OSF/True64 more help

make sunos SunOS 4.x (tested: 4.1.4)
make sgi SGI running IRIX
make sgi-gcc SGI running IRIX using GCC cc
make ultrix DEC Ultrix (tested: 4.4)
make os2 IBM OS/2
make netbsd NetBSD
make openbsd OpenBSD
make mint MiNT on Atari
make generic try this one if your system isn't listed above

Please read the file INSTALL for additional information.
[root@localhost mpg123]#
then when I type ¨make generic¨ I get:
[root@localhost mpg123]# make generic
make LDFLAGS= OBJECTS='decode.o dct64.o audio_dummy.o' \
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/win_f/New Folder/linux/mpg123'
make[2]: Entering directory `/mnt/win_f/New Folder/linux/mpg123'
cc -O -DGENERIC -DNOXFERMEM -c -o mpg123.o mpg123.c
make[2]: cc: Command not found
make[2]: *** [mpg123.o] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/win_f/New Folder/linux/mpg123'
make[1]: *** [mpg123-make] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/win_f/New Folder/linux/mpg123'
make: *** [generic] Error 2
[root@localhost mpg123]#
Can anyone help me with this please?

Thanx, 'll let you know what happened.

I didnt know what to install so I installed all the development stuff. It seemd to have done something but I still cant install the stuff I've downloaded. It gives me a different message now.

I've been having some problems with my PC and my Mandrake CD is messed, so as soon as I get all that sorted out I'll tell you guys what the message says.

Thanx for the help so far.
