    it means it cannot find the make command, most likely it is not installed

    You need to install make. Go to Kicker > Tools > System Tools > Configure Your Computer. You will be asked for the root password. After the program comes up, click on Software Management. Type "make" in the search bar and pick the most up to date version. Click on "Apply" and you're done, make has been installed. You may as well install the GNU compiler collection while you're there.

    You can also get there from konsole by typing "mcc" at the command line. mcc stands for Mandriva Control Center, and it does much more than software management. This is also where you set up your network connections, control your services and install new hardware.

    You should probably also install webmin and usermin, because it will make it easier for you to configure all of your programs, especially if you aren't accustomed to hand editing .conf files. Just type "http://localhost:10000" in Konqueror, and you will be in webmin.
