New Debian User needs an idea

Hello all,
I am a fairly experienced Fedora user trying out Debian for the first time. I have a 3 disk distribution from Linux Central and I can get it to install and boot to a command line. The installer uses only the first disk. My problem is that I can't bring up the GUI. I have a driver for the video card but in order to install it gcc and the kernel headers are required, and missing. Also my only web source is via a wireless, which needs to be configured with ndiswrapper. This requires, guess what, gcc and the kernel headers so I can't download them. I tried aptitude and it requests a disk be mounted but it is not any of the disks that I have. I suspect that gcc is hiding on one of the disks I have if only I knew how to get to it. Ideas?
The computer is dual booted so I could use the Fedora side to download and copy over.
