These lines imply that you downloaded them by hand and are trying to
install manually. The best way to solve this problem is to just use
apt-get. The second best way is to use 'dpkg -i libc6_2.3.1-9_hppa.deb
If this solves your problem, you may want to spend a bit of time reading
the 'apt-get' and 'dpkg' man pages. Those should have this and other
really important information for you.
