init: memory violation at pc=1555555ddc4 rp=1555555b754 (bad adress=00000008)
is what I get on startup of init, now, having replaced my old libc-2.0.7.so
(which was, I believe, from redhat) with the one you provided.  The procedure I
used was this:
1. I downloaded your file libc-2.0.7.so
2. I rebooted to a boot disk filesystem
3. I made a backup of the existing libc-2.0.7.so
4. I gave root ownership of the new libc-2.0.7.so
5. I set mode 755 on the new file
6. I rebooted.

What's odd is the difference in filesize between your new file and the one I had:

libc-2.0.7.so (new) 901549
libc-2.0.7.so.redhat 4462177
