    I got it from Index of /gnu/glibc - but it doesn't seem to have anything marked as pre-compiled. (btw, does 'binary' imply 'pre-compiled' or is that something different?)

    The only files that have anything to do with 2.4 are:
    glibc-2.4-2.5.diff.gz
    glibc-2.4-2.5.diff.gz.sig
    glibc-2.4.tar.bz2
    glibc-2.4.tar.bz2.sig
    glibc-2.4.tar.gz
    glibc-2.4.tar.gz.sig

    I've looked through several pages of google search results for a few different searches that seemed likely. No luck. Thanks for the quick replies.

    Sorry things are so tough.

    Yes, binary (or bin) implies pre-compiled. You should be able to find binaries out there somewhere.

    I'm currently still looking; haven't given up yet. Do you have an opinion on whether or not I should be looking for a glibc or a gcc binary? Will one work without the other? (that is, if glibc is just a library, I'd have to find a version of gcc that works with the older glibc version I have)

    I may have found them.

    ftp://ftp.thewrittenword.com/package...ame/gcc-3.4.3/
    and
    ftp://ftp.thewrittenword.com/package...me/glib-2.6.5/

    The 2nd one doesn't say glibc, so I don't know if it's the right one.

    They each have a list of platforms and OSes to pick from. None are a perfect match. What about i686-pc-linux-gnu?

    Not quite sure what you've done with the fonts, but I'm glad you got apt working.

    I couldnt help but to laugh at my self, I also forgot we were helping you install a compiler so the commands to compile wouldnt work to compile a compiler since you werent able to compile anything in the first place... LOL...
