Replacing GCC to lower version

I have a need to change my current GCC version from GCC 4.0 to GCC3.4 or lower. Can someone tell me the easy way to do the replacement without going through the download the soruce, build, and configuring stuff?

you really can't replace your gcc with a lower version. what you can do is have multiple versions of gcc. if your distribution doesn't provide multiple versions built in a safe way so they can coexist. (i think debian does) you will have to compile yourfelf and be carefull about it.
