On neither of the 2 CD-ROM's is there any support for libc5. Legacy
applications (like WordPerfect 8) need libc5 support.

Can future versions keep the require legacy files.
(being: libc-5.3.12-31 and ld_so-1.9.5-13)

This is by design.  Old compability stuff is kept along just for so long.  Just
grab those from RHL 6.2 if you need them.  Perhaps this will force the vendors
to actually redo the binaries once in 5 years.
