Angry SuSE Linux 9.1, YaST says GCC installed, but Installers Say No Compiler Available

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling from the SuSE CD as well. I am a Linux noob, so I may have overlooked something obvious. Thank you.

"YaST says GCC installed, but Installers Say No Compiler Available"

The installers usually call the C compiler "cc". So you need to have cc as an alias for gcc. You can check for both cc and gcc with:
which cc
which gcc

If cc is mising then make it an alias for gcc with:
ln -s gcc /usr/bin/cc

The above command assumes that gcc is in /usr/bin/cc.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
