Subject: Polygons w/ compass and straight edge

I have been asked if it is possible to construct all regular polygons
with just a compass and straight edge. I have checked the several
geometry books and some of the math puzzle books available to me
here without finding an answer. It seems to me that the seven-
sided regular polygon might be the first that cannot be so
constructed, but I can't prove it. Any suggestions? Thanks for
your attention.
