Thanks. I've got them safe too now.

Ok, now that Glibc' 2.2 is considered stable it's time for me to start 
building LFS systems and test Glibc. I will not just test glibc if it works 
with the packages from the book but I'm going to reinstall my own system 
based on glibc-2.2 and see if it's stable with programs like XFree86, KDE2 
and a whole slew of other programs. The fact is that a lot of program may not 
compile nicely with this new glibc because they need time to adjust to the 
new Glibc version. Then it may not be advisable to run Glibc-2.2 on our 
machines if a lot of software won't run properly. But that all remains to be 
seen. I have read messages by people who have a running LFS system based on 
Glibc-2.2 so perhaps it's not all as bad as it may seem.
