glibc and Oracle problem

I am trying to install Oracle 8.1 on my Debian system.

There is a glitch documented on the Oracle site explaining that
Oracle requires glibc version 2.1.3, and will fail with version 2.2.
It describes how to overcome this problem, using a "compat-glibc RPM".

I have thought of using alien to install the RPM, but am worried
that it might do something nasty to my working system. I have tried
downloading and compiling the source for glibc 2.1.3, but compilation
fails. (Perhaps newer headers are incompatable?)

Suggestions welcome.
