 debian-user@lists.debian.org would be more appropriate.

 You seem to be trying to install lilo from testing/unstable.  That
version is the one that depends on libc6 >= 2.2.5-13, the version in
stable depends on >= 2.2.4-4.  Please doubleckeck your
/etc/apt/sources.list for entries about testing, sarge, unstable or sid,
and remove them.

 The packages pages are correct, your system seems to be the problem.

 Have fun,
