Installing gcc-2.95.3

I have downloaded gcc-2.95.3

Then did the following
1. tar zxvf gcc-2.95.3.tar.gz
2. cd gcc-2.95.3
3. ./configure
4. make

I've got to this point successfully and have read the final install html document, which confused me more than helped me. So I'm wondering after doing a make, which directory do have to change to (It says something about this in the final install html document). I doing this on Mandy 8.0 and would also like this compiler (2.95.3) to become the default one.

Any help would greatly apprecaited

Use configure with --prefix=/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx
I've got gcc ver 3 compiled from source and it sets symbolic links to becaome default one.
