    Are you a newbie with Linux (I mean no offense, i'm too) ? You gave no information on your config and attempts.

    Have you tried the RPM way ?
    Start the mandrake control center (using KDE or Gnome menus, or in command line write "mcc"), chose "install programs", and there you are, just input the name of the things you want installed.

    Hoping i'm not stating something already obvious for you...

    as root try the following in a terminal:
    urpmi glibc2.3.4 or even urpmi glibc this command will look up the nearest Mandrake ftp server and download the glibc package and install it along with any dependancy. If the first command doesn't work, the 2nd one will retreve a list of files containing glibc in their name.
