Linux C programming

Hopefully a simple question here:

Am trying to do the simple Hello World program with gcc. I put in the standard

  printf("Hello, World\n:);

and then type

gcc hello.c

It starts to compile, and then I get

/usr/bin/ld: cannot open crt1.o: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I am too new to Linux to figure out why this is happening. Does anyone have any clues for me?
