gcc installation probelm

I tried to reinstall Gcc .

The following are the ways I tried to reinstall it:

(i) I looked at "system Settings"-> "Add/Remove Applications"
I not found GCC there.So I skipped it.

(ii) Took libgcc.i386.rpm package from Fedora Disk1 and tried the following command "rpm -i libgcc.i386.rpm". It is telling "already libgcc installed".

Is there any other way to install GCC? Is that RPM package right for installing GCC?. As iam new to Linux I am unable to type advanced linux commands to check gcc. Help me please

to check whether your gcc is already installed try this

#rpm -qa gcc

libgcc*.rpm is a library file content redhat package manager file

try rpm -ivh gcc-3.4.2***.rpm
