slackware 8.1 missing a package, not sure which...

ive had slackware 8.1 up for 13monthes now and finally decided to put X on it... i have icewm and a few minor progies on it but most wont run because i lack the library to run them... specifically mozilla or xchat wont run without the, ive looked all over the net and the only place i can find info on this file is in other distros... I cant be the only person with this problem can i?

the system is a Toshiba satelite pro 430CDS with 1.3 gig hard drive and no cdrom (died last week) to install any packages on the system i am required to upload the tgz over samba then installpkg from the harddrive... i have about 80mb free as well so any advice would be great... ive tried most libs on the slack cd as well but obviously not the right one... if u know exactly which pkg the library is in that would help out alot

btw, there might be posts on other thread (duplicate thread)
