Google on 'libc6.2-2.so.3', find a site that has the appropriate RPM for it for your machine/distro, install it and then reinstall XXX.rpm.

This happens when the actual program you are trying to install relies on other libraries that it can't find on your system. If those libraries already happen to be installed on your system, then no, you won't get any dependency issues.

Welcome to dependency hell. There are defintiely some programs that require a certain level of fanaticism in order to get working properly. You have to either decide to put up with it or find a different program that doesn't require so many libraries.
