If your linux is RPMs based then you can simply download using YUM
Issue the following command

yum install gcc

The above should work on CentOS, Redhat (if you have enabled subscription).  It also requires YUM repository to be properly setup.
If you have CD/DVD for your Linux, it may already have it and you can simply install it from it.

Hi,

I have g++3.2 already downloaded it but I don't know how to install it. I was told that I need to install with gcc3.4 but not sure how..

I downloaded it in /usr/local  directory and I do the following:

./configure  ;which works fine

make  ; but I get the following error message
[root@pet1 gcc-3.2]# make

You need to type make bootstrap to build gcc from source. I don't think bootstrap is the default target.

Please point your browser at file:///usr/local/src/gcc-3.2/INSTALL/configure.html (assuming you extracted gcc-3.2.tar.gz to /usr/local/src). In particular, observe this fragment from the configure section
First, we highly recommend that GCC be built into a separate directory than the sources which does not reside within the source tree. This is how we generally build GCC; building where srcdir == objdir should still work, but doesn't get extensive testing; building where objdir is a subdirectory of srcdir is unsupported.
When I have built gcc, I have used a top-level directory called /build, to which I have given myself all access. It is a very unsafe practice to build software as root. I keep sources in /usr/src, so from /build I enter /usr/local/src/gcc-3.2/configure <options>
It's best to have all access to the source directory as well, because a few documentation files are built there instead of the /build tree, as I remember.
