those packages are pretty much dependent on one version of OS, so downgrading probably isnt an option
you may have to reinstall with RH As 3, or use centos if you dont want to shell out the money to redhat

www.centos.org

but yea, your pretty much gonna have to reinstall because the gcc packages are pretty well intertwined in your OS and the apps installed on it
