It is highly discouraged to install hamm *over* bo (i.e. you should not
use hamm's install disks to install hamm on an already bo system).
If you want to upgrade, try to follow the libc5-libc6-mini-HOWTO.
If you want to test hamm from scratch, use hamm's boot disks (which are
already libc6-based) but you would have to create a new, empty e2fs system
in your root partition (or mv everything in your old root partition into a
directory such as /OLDSYSTEM at the very beginning in the installation
procedure, by switching to the second virtual console).

I would install hamm again.
