Here is where knowing how to use dpkg comes in handy. At this point I
would try installing libc5, and forget about libc6 so that I could get a
working machine once again. Try:

dpkg -i /var/path/to/libc_debian-file.deb

The ususal place (via ftp) is:


Take note of what dpkg complains and attempt to download those particulars
files by hand, and install them the same way. Once you have fixed up libc5
and ld.so you could then switch back to using dselect and see if that
helps to fix the problem. 

However I've often found that dselect will just it things wrong, and muck
the system up again and normally would use dpkg until dselect reported no
problems and then continue with it.

Good luck,
