Upgrading RH 8.0 with Fedora RPM's

I've got a RH 8.0 development box, on which I would like to upgrade gcc
to 3.3.2.

Would it be a particularly bad idea to upgrade using the Fedora RPM's,
i.e. would this break my current distribution in any way? AFAIK the C++
ABI is now frozen (as of 3.2 and up), so theoretically there shouldn't
be any problems with upgrading libstdc++ etc., but theory and practice
are almost never the same...

Any tips/pointers appreciated!
