RocketGrabAndBurn quick install question

okay here i am again...i saw a reference to Rocket Grab And Burn in another thread, downloaded it, and began to is the transcript

[root@localhost dl]# gzip -d GrabAndBurn-20061124.tar.gz
[root@localhost dl]# tar -xvf GrabAndBurn-20061124.tar

<removed so this post isn't freakishly long>

[root@localhost dl]# ls
GrabAndBurn-20061124 GrabAndBurn-20061124.tar jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin
[root@localhost dl]# cd GrabAndBurn-20061124
[root@localhost GrabAndBurn-20061124]# ls RocketGrabAndBurn rocket-html
[root@localhost GrabAndBurn-20061124]# ./RocketGrabAndBurn
./RocketGrabAndBurn: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
so as you can see right there, the lib got extracted and is in the directory, but i still get this error. i'm wondering if i maybe need to copy those files to /lib?

sorry guys, i'm already annoying myself with these questions so thanks for your patience.

also if anybody wouldn't mind telling me how to change the name of my machine (localhost just accentuates my noobness) i'd be greatly appreciative.

You may be missing this library file libstdc++-libc6.2-2.s o.3 You need to find and add the package that provides libc6.2-2.s.o.3
