Default Problems with nvidia driver installation

Hi! I have problems installing the nvidia graphic card driver...
First of all, I have installed "GCC" and "make".
I have also installed the linux-header files.
When I try to install the nvidia drivers I get the following error;

Code:
gcc-version-check failed:

Could not compile gcc-version-check.c

If you know what you are doing and want to ignore the gcc version check, 
select "No" to continue installation. Otherwise, selec "Yes"
 to abort installation, set the CC environment variable to the name 
of the compiler used to compile your kernel, and restart installation. 
Abort now?
What is CC environment variable?
How can I get rid of this problem? As I said, I have GCC installed, but maybe I have the wrong version or something? But I don't know which version the kernel was compiled on ( I have the original kernel, not updated by myself..)
Did i mentioned that I use Ubuntu Linux?
If somebody knows anything about this, please explain what I should do and where, because I am pretty new with Linux..

Thanks in advance!

check that you have 'g++' installed and try again.
