Exclamation Can't find 'make' on new Ubuntu install

I'm a new *nix user - I just installed Ubuntu 5.1. I followed the Ubuntu docs to install my wifi card. Apparently I need NdisWrapper, which I've downloaded and untarred - all set to install it.

According to the NdisWrapper docs I need to compile NW using 'make'. But...I get "make: command not found" when I try to run it.

I ran a 'find' on my filesystem and didn't find 'make' anywhere. I feel like an idiot - but am I missing something obvious? It doesn't seem fair that a brand-new Ubuntu install on a clean partition wouldn't contain 'make'. Help!

Thanks for your time!
