Unhappy Problems with installing GCC

I downloaded GCC-3.3 and now im trying to configure it this is what happens:

[root@luckyclay source]# cd gcc-3.3
[root@luckyclay gcc-3.3]# ./configure
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
Created "Makefile" in /opt/source/gcc-3.3 using "mt-frag"
./configure: line 8: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

whats this ./configure: line 8: cc: command not found?
and how do I set the environement variable CC to a working compiler?

this may not solve your problem directly, but try logging in as root

type su before u do a ./configure

also, try installing gcc from you linux cd, it should have something on it and should install it with no hassle

what distro r u using?
