I know, I did a couple of NFS systems with this stuff, but I noticed that
nfs-utils and several other quite common programs cause trouble. I can solve
this. You can solve this. Not everyone can. If you consider yourself skilled
enough to try 2.2.2, go ahead. But I warn you that glibc 2.2.2 may not be the
ultimate Linux experience. 2.2.1 is good enough, use that for a no-prob sys.

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
