it looks like the program you're looking for is looking for gcc2.96 or something. try going to red hat and downloading and installing the gcc 2.96 packages. or you can try to set the CC option in configure to something like:

./configure CC=gcc3

but i maybe way off on that. installing multiple versions of gcc should be fine though as the binaries and files are named differently. i've got 2 versions of gcc installed - 2.96 and 3.1

It's not finding the compiler at all, so you'll need to install it. You can either find the files in Konqueror and double-click on them or you can type:
rpm -i packagename.rpm
at the terminal. If you get any dependency errors, you may need to install other packages too. "rpm -i" uses the RedHat package manager (RPM) and the "-i" sets it to install. If you want more help about the other options available, use "man rpm".
You should just need gcc-3.2.2-5.i386.rpm to start off with, but you should really install gcc-c++-3.2.2-5.i386.rpm afterwards so that you can compile programs that need c++.
Hope this helps

OK...I don't want to rush into this, so I did better ask at every step.

1) I run rpm -i gcc-3.2.2-5.i386.rpm and the error I get is,

error: Failed dependencies:
binutils >= is needed by gcc-3.2.2-5
cpp = 3.2.2-5 is needed by gcc-3.2.2-5
glibc-devel >= 2.2.90-12 is needed by gcc-3.2.2-5
libgcc >= 3.2.2-5 is needed by gcc-3.2.2-5
[root@nishith gcc]#

2) What files should I now run to complete this.

3) What is the order in which I should run these files.
