Re: WARNING: libc6 in unstable

Thanks. That worked and I'm back into Debian.  I downloaded the
tar.gz file and opened it in OSX.  Copied the files to my HFS partition and
rebooted using the Debian install CD 1.  Mounted the / partition and
the HFS partition and then copied the libc-2.3.1.so file over the
broken one.

rebooted and all is fine.
