I'd suggest doing an 'rpm --verify -a' and see what lib related things
it complains about. You may not gave gotten everything re-installed that
got deleted.

Also, if you had to re-install glibc it is important that you used the
correct CPU specific rpms. On a Pentium (where 'uname -m' returns i686)
you must use the i686 rpm of glibc-2.3.2-27.9.7
The instructions said to use Windows 98 or better, so I installed RedHat
