enhanced desktop = The little desktop icons on your screen AND the little dockapps like the mount, network usage and memory usage and volume controls on the bottom left side of your screen.
enhanced hard drive install = a hard drive installation with a download from the Internet that restores the original GNU utilities that were replaced by "busybox" to save space on the livecd.
In order to compile source, you need to either do an enhanced hd install or you can load up the gnu utils myDSL extension. Then you need to either "enable apt", "install synaptic" or load up the dpkg dsl extension. You also need to either:
Get on to the Internet, change your /etc/apt/sources.list file to point to the "unstable" servers and then apt-get install make gcc g++
Or if you are adventurous, you can manually download the requires *.deb packages and dependencies and install them to a non-Internet computer using the "dpkg -i nameofpackage.deb" command as user 'root'
Search the forums for "gcc AND make" search all forums and search from the beginning or newer.
