Smile Need help in configuring FC4 for installing Oracle DB 10g.

I am new to Linux FC4 and Oracle DB 10g. I am installing Oracle DB 10g on my already installed Fedora Core 4 (Everything).

I am trying to complete the pre-installation steps for Oracle DB. I need help with the issue of installing lower versioned FC4 packages when higher versioned packages are already installed. I ran the command:

# rpm -q compat-gcc-7.3
Output: package compat-gcc-7.3 is not installed.

# rpm -q compat-gcc
Output: compat-gcc-

What I understand is the following:
I have the compat-gcc package but it is the version.

But I need the 7.3 version for the correct installation of the Oracle DB 10g.

When I try to install the compat-gcc version from the '' site, I get the message that, "a newer version is installed". So, the OS doesnt accept the 7.3 version.

How do I install the compat-gcc-7.3 versioned package?

Do I need to uninstall the whole thing and reinstall the whole thing? That
sounds easier and faster rather than wasting time with this workaround.

thanx in advance,
