RedHat has available the glibc-2.2 libraries out there.  It also fixes a crash
problem with XMMS, that if you've used it, you know what I'm talking about. 
Just RPM it with a --force --nodeps and it'll install like a dream, and you're
all set!

If you're downloading the newest RPMs from RedHat, you have to be aware that
they expect you to be up to date on all of their RPMs, or at least those that
are system vital (like glibc)
