gcc 2.96 on Fedora Core 5

Hello !

I want to ask how to install/use gcc 2.96(gcc in red hat 7.3)
in FC5 ? I will be using it in only one project so it would
be best if I can still keep the gcc(gcc 4.1) in FC5.

Thanks in advance

Install the compat libs for FC5 then use the set --prefix switch. For example to install the compat-libs try something like:

yum install compat-libgcc* conpat-libstdc++* compat-gcc*
