First, I would recommend downloading version 6.0.0, and not 6.0.0-beta.

You need to make sure that you download the version that is closest to the version of gcc that you have, but not a newer version of gcc. That is, you don't want to download a gcc432 binary if you only have gcc 4.2.1 on your system. Please see

for more information.
