    I have a Linux Red Hat 8.0
    I canīt install samba because I havenīt some files for compilation.
    Do I need gcc ?

    Gcc!

    I assume, since you mention "compiling", that you are using a source-based version of Samba, and not a ready binary.
    If you are going to compile Samba then YES you need gcc.
    You will also need other various libraries.

    And gcc is easily downloadable from www.gnu.org or whichever linux distribution site you prefer. If you want more help, I suggest you post error messages and info about what happens when you try to install samba.

    install

    Why not google for a samba rpm?

    Would be much better than source.
    Or use your install CDs to put an older version of samba on.
