Mandrake 7.2 gcc problems

hey everybody. I recentally figured out everything and finally got around to trying to compile my drivers for my ehternet card. When I got everything ready, Typed in the nice little gcc ..... compile command, The beautiful console sent back a handsome "bash: gcc: command not found" error! I have gcc installed (package is installed). Is there something that I have to do to get the package working? did mandrake forget to install the package but copy it on to my system? It did work before when I tried mandrake, But I had different installation options.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am almost there.. Linux is great, But is a little hard to get working properly.

I'd hate to state the obvious, but you are doing this as root, yes?

Also- are you sure that you need to compile?
In other words, are you sure that your distro's kernel doesn't natively support your NIC's module?

The thing is if you updated gcc to a most recent version one possibility what might happen is that kernel itself was compiled using different version of gcc, also kernel might use kgcc for modules compilation, I read it in this book
