Search for the string

'rpm gcc for fedora 8'

you will get desired results, then either u can download rpm from that site or else just copy the name of rpm and check it in your installation disk, then install it.

i followed "dont know's" info and i found a site and it told me to go "yum install compat-gcc-34 compat-gcc-34-c++" so i did, the thing downloaded and installed but when i entered "gcc34" or "g++34" like it told me, it did not run. how can i run this program?

fedora will come with a bundle of software within it. and it can be installed using the package manager. U don't need to use any commands for that. look for package manager. in debian "Synaptic package manager" is there. but i don't know about fedora. try it.
