Question documentation instructions installing gcc

I'm in the process of trying to install Slackware's gcc 2.95.3 compiler on our Slackware 8.1 system. There is one major problem, there doesn't seem to be any documentation on how to do this. If someone could point me in the right direction or provide me with this install procedure I would appreciate it. I've checked slakware's web site and found nothing.

Well, since that's the slackware gcc that actually came with slack 8.1 you can just pop in your slack cd, mount it up, cd to your mount directory, then:
cd slackware/d
Now, you can either:
installpkg gcc-2.95.3-i386-2.tgz
{from current directory}
select the GCC package
