Help Installing GCC 4.0.1

Please don't tell me to search google.

I have this Issue with installing from source, so I want to install GCC 4.0.1 . I downloaded the base package,
Do I need other packages to install it aswell?
How do I compile it? it's a *.tar.bz2 file.

Please help.

the gcc package is 30+mb, so the others are just included (gjc, etc). so you only need the gcc401 or whatever, file.

well... search google.
why do you say not to? there would be an overwhelming number of results for compiling from source.

if your just lazy, then read this tutorial on compliing/installing from source. the example uses a .tar.gz, so you might need to read this so you know how to extract .bz2's

again, why not search google?
