gcc 3.2.2 install problem

I am trying to install gcc 3.2.2 on my red hat linux machine , which has no working compiler gcc installed earlier.
When i tried to download the source file & proceeded with
./configure , I am asked to set the environment variable to a working compiler.

Can anyone please suggest me how to go about this issue.
Being novice , am i missing any basic stuff.

Thanks in Advance

you must have a compiler to compile a compiler.
Which RedHat distro are you using? RedHat comes with the GCC compiler.
