regarding wine and alien

hello I need help in installing the wine program on my red hat 9, whenever I try to install it it tells me it lacks the gcc and cc and cl where can I get that? does my red hat 9 discs have them in it? I also found alien program thats supposedly converts rpms to debian format (for installers I think) that too is not working, it tells me that I need a c compiler, I'm new to linux, its kinda hard to install programs specially when it lacks something, I'm having a hard time figuring things out despite searching the internet, although I'm prettey sure there is abundant info out there on howtos, anyway appreciate any help thanks!

sounds like you need to install gcc, the gnu C compiler. There should be an RPM for it that you can find easily by googling, or some kind, RPM-familiar soul will post a link here for you.

What is the RH package management thing... yast? try using that to install it
