Now I have gcc/cpp/cpp, but still can't install

yesterday I posted a message about installing gcc/cc/cpp etc.
Now, trying to install it I get this message

rpm -i gcc-3.2-0.1.src.rpm
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

A user of this site said i have to use rpm --rebuild gcc-3.2-0.1.src.rpm
but I get this message
rpm --rebuild gcc-3.2-0.1.src.rpm
gcc-3.2-0.1.src.rpm: No such file or directory

It means that gcc-3.2-0.1.src.rpm is not in the directory you are issuing the command from
as root
find / -name gcc-3.2-0.1.src.rpm -exec rpm --rebuild '{}' ';'
if it finds the file it executes rpm --rebuild on it then it rpm --rebuild puts the rpm files into /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/<architecture directory>
then just descend into apropriate directory and run rpm -ihv package1.rpm package2.rpm and so on
