    It comes with the Dev-C++ installation package.

    And what problem do you have with the installation - do you get an error, or something else that is a problem?

    Download the installer and run it.

    Are you talking about GCC4?

    Read the notes.

    Basically, the instructions are: "Extract the files, maintaining the directory structure, into your root
    directory for mingw."

    Yes, or by downloading the files manually. That's pretty much what the installer does, anyway.

    and then extract what ?
    Tell you what. Take a look around the download pages at Sourceforge.
