Make sure you have egcs (or gcc if you prefer) installed on your system.

Mount your cdrom, go to /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/ and install these

rpm -i egcs-1.1.2-12e.ppc.rpm
rpm -i egcs-c++-1.1.2-12e.ppc.rpm

(This is assuming that you are running CS 1.1. There are also two more
egcs packages that you may or may not want to install. There may also be
dependencies that you have to install first.)
