No.  Yes.  DON'T force it.  Instead, go get the libc5 that Scott Ellis
has at ftp://ftp.gate.net/pub/users/storm .  That libc5 does not
conflict with libc6 and will allow you to complete the upgrade.

This is mentioned in the HOWTO, btw.  The HOWTO may be found at
http://www.gate.net/~storm/FAQ/libc5-libc6-Mini-HOWTO.html .

Good luck,
