You could go to to get gcc, and you install it with rpm -i
By the way, why do you want to do it the hard way, and not the simple yast-gui way?

give it a try to yast:

$ yast

will run YaST on the command line prompt, then you can browse throught the packages and install gcc (it automatically computes dependencies), otherwise you need to install gcc, binutils and libc manually (or RPM'ed) try

Hi and welcome to LQ. I would use YAST to install packages. YAST -> Software Management and search for gcc. If you use openSUSE 10.3 you can do
#zypper install gcc
The methods described above will install the packages from the installation discs or online repositories depending on which discs you have and which repos you setup.
