You don't install any tars from any download mirrors. Use the "Add/Remove Software" tool or the command-line yum program to install the "Development Tools" package group, which includes GCC and all the required library and header files.

For a minimum development environment you should do

Code:
yum install gcc make patch
and if you need to compile kernel modules for VirtualBox etc also do

Code:
yum install kernel-devel
the group install of "Devlopment Tools" brings in a lot of extra packages including the huge frysk package, if space/bandwidth is not a concern then do the groupinstall.
