why would you want to do that? if it is to compile old code written for 2.95 then download the compatabily libs. it should be package compat-libstdc++-296

If you are wanting to do this type of thing DO NOT use an rpm based distro. They are very tightly tied to the version of GCC that the system was built around. Use something like Gentoo or Slackware. They are not tied (as tightly) the the version of GCC.
