install new gcc v3.4.5 over gcc v3.2.2 on red hat 9

Hi All,
I have installed red hat 9.0 on my machine, but that have installed with 3.2.2 version of gcc. I want to install latest and then remove the older version. Is it possible? otherwise can I install newer version right over it replacing the old one? If both of these are not possible, then can I just install a new version and make it the "default" compiler for all the files.
Any one of this option will be OK, as long as I can easily work on 3.4.5 release. Please help.

Thanks --mlaich

just thinking...

hi, I was thinking that since all the rest of gcc version have been installed at /usr/lib/gcc-lib, could I just install a new version at some new location and after installation of new version, delete the old folder... but I am not sure would it do???
