help in generating a gaussian random variable

Hi

I need to generate a Gaussian random variable y having mean =0 and variance
=x.

The variance x is itself a gaussian random variable having a known mean and
variance.
e.g. mean of x =5;
variance of x = 10;

Can anyone suggest how to use this information to generate y ?

thanks

Salman
