I'm trying to install the ati driver found here:

because 3d for the rage mobility card in my thinkpad a21m is not supported in the xfree86 module for dsl. xfree is working fine for 2d but there is no 3d acceleration.

So, I am trying to follow the simple and short instructions on that site.
Also to do that I've installed glibc2 to be able to use the make command, and the kernel source from mydsl.

When I run makefile I get this:

=== KERNEL HEADERS IN  /lib/modules/2.4.26/build/include
=== Compiling for machine i686
=== WARNING Use 2.4.x kernels ONLY !
cc -2 -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Wstrict-prototypes -Wnested-externs -Wpointer-arith -D -DMODULE -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -DCONFIG_AGP -DCONFIG_AGP_MODULE -DCONFIG_DRM_SIS -D -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -I/lib/modules/2.4.26/build/include -c gamma_drv.c -o gamma_drv.o
make: cc: Command not found
make: *** [gama_drv.o] Error 127

and then it stops.
Does anyone know where I've gone wrong or what I'm missing?
Thank you much!

The error "make: cc: Command not found" says enough. You do not have a compiler to compile the code. There is a light (tiny) compiler in DSL, but you should use the gcc compiler in the DSL repository. You can get it there.
