I'm working on this ShP2010 project, but i don't have the "Master Page" link under "Look and Feel" in my site settings.

Is that a configuration? can it be enabled to show the link?

In 2007 I'm pretty sure you had to enable the publishing infrastructure site collection feature and the publishing site feature. You might have to do the same with 2010.

This is still true for SharePoint 2010 – Neil White Nov 5 '10 at 10:59

I don't know if it's true in SP2010, but in 2007 you couldn't select a different masterpage in WSS 3.0 via the website, only via Sharepoint Designer (set as default masterpage). If you are using SPF 2010, this might be the problem you are facing.
