Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

From the output you provided it appears quite apparent that you have glibc-2.3.2 installed. The modprobe and insmod are looking for glibc-2.3.4 because that is what they were compiled against.
Have you updated your system recently? It's quite possible that you may have inadvertently copied these binaries for modprobe and insmod (and likely lsmod, etc) from a source that is not appropriate for your system.
What Linux distro are you using? Maybe if you did an update you might be able to set everything to normal. --- I just noticed you stated in the OP that you are using RHEL. Try running the following commands (as root):
# up2date up2date
As a last resort, you should be able to find the original modprobe/insmod/lsmod/etc on your original CD for your distro.

your libc,so.6 is link to an older version of libc which is libc-2.3.2. you need a higher version.
at my system I see libc-2.5.so.
You can check the net for a higher version.
And tell us please what you have done before.
