How to install network on Dell Inspiron 5100?

I have just installed RedHat Linux on my DELL Inspiron 5100
But Internet is not working so from Windows
I found the driver for Broadcom NIC card. It was in
Then I run make from the scr directory but that failed:

[root@localhost src]# make
gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -DDBG=0 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -I/usr/src/linux/include -c -o b44um.o b44um.c
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [b44um.o] Error 127

How can I solve the problem?
Please help!!!

You need to cd to the source directory first then do ./configure then do make then do make install. Make sure you read the readme to ensure you have all the necessary dependencies to do this.
