Question RPM for GCC on Redhat Enterprise Linux

I have Redhat Enterprise Linux Version 3 WS on a Pentium system. I am trying to install gcc-3.4.1 but cannot find an rpm for my distro. Can I use an rpm for i686-pc-linux-gnu?

Also, when I install gcc from an rpm, will it override my previous gcc thus causing stuff installed using the previous gcc to break?

If it is a new version, only the new things will be upgraded. If ur version is older than that of the existing version, u will get a message saying u have a better version installed currently.

Also, if I install gcc from the source tar ball, will I be able to uninstall it, and revert to my old version?
