Splunk Error on FC3 Box


Okay I'm trying to install Splunk on all of our servers. The newer servers don't seem to take issue with it, but we have five older servers that are giving me this message.

Code:
Verifying configuration.  This may take a while...
python: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /splunk/lib/libpython2.4.so.1.0)
python: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /splunk/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
Finished verifying configuration.
Checking index directory...
python: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /splunk/lib/libpython2.4.so.1.0)
python: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /splunk/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
Your datastore's directory structure does not seem to be correct. Do you want Splunk to correct it? [y/N]:
I'm pretty sure it's just because of outdated libraries but I am hesitant to update them because of bad prior experiences. If I just yum update the glib - will that fix the issue or will it cause more problems? Or both?

The servers it does not run on are running fc3. However, some of the newer boxes are also running fc3 but most are running centos 4.

yeah Splunk has a firm requirement for glibc version 2.3. Getting those boxes running the correct version of glibc will solve the problem.

Sorry I just re-read my question and noticed that I didn't put that at all. I wanted to know if I update glibc, will it kill anything else? Meaning, are those libraries backwards compatible.

The previous sysadmin scared me into thinking that I should never upgrade anything because it will break stuff. How do I tell if it will or not?
