Last time I did that I wound up booting off a knoppix cd, mounting the
root partition and unpacking a deb of libc by hand.
You can unpack a deb file with ar. Just run "ar x <debfile>". You'll
wind up with 3 files. control.tar.gz (control/install scripts)
data.tar.gz (what you want to unpack in your root partition to get libc
back) and debian-binary (text file).
After rebooting I did an apt-get --reinstall install libc6 just to make
sure everything was back the way it was supposed to be. It worked for
me, good luck.
