I'm trying to compile a new kernel for the first time. So iI used google and found a howto.
I did exactly what is described in the howto but I get an error.

Can somebody help me please?

You have to install a c compiler in order to compile your kernel (or anything else). You can do it with this command:
apt-get install gcc

lacek is right. i sugest that you try make menuconfig or make xconfig (if you are running an X server).
