Fedora core 3's gcc and its system libraries

hi all

I had a couple of questions involving the relationship between fedora
core 3, gcc and glibc. FC-3's gcc version is 3.4 something.

I have a acer 7600GT Veriton machine and I searched online that only
redhat 9 has been tested and verified that it runs on this machine. I
installed fedora core 3 and it also runs perfectly.

But problem is that the source code I am working with is compatible
with an old gcc (gcc 2.XX series) and an old kernel 2.4.21.

I think thats why I noticed that all of my colleagues have an old redhat installation (redhat 7.3).

Installing redhat 7.3 on acer doesnt work as I need to find what kind of cd-rom I have? any ideas on finding that?

Also, is there a way I can keep my existing Fedora core installation
and try to download, compile and install an old gcc? I would really prefer that.

Should I remove gcc and and how do I install an old gcc version, what about the existing glibc installation, and other system libraries?

Sorry for the long mail and if it seems convoluted, but I would really appreciate answers as this issue has been plaguing me for quite some time now.
