Exclamation Conflict between glibc upgrade and initscripts in Mandrake 9.0, help!

I am using Mandrake 9.0 and want to upgrade to glibc 2.3.2. But when I try to, it says glibc2.3.2 conflicts with initscripts. When I try to upgrade initscripts, it says I need an updated version of glibc!! I tried to upgrade to 2.3.1, as my rpms awaiting install requires > glibc2.3, but that conflicts with initscripts as well, and it also says locales requires glibc 2.2.5! This is what happens when I try to install glibc 2.3.1:

error: failed dependencies:
initscripts < 6.91-18mdk conflicts with glibc-2.3.1-10mdk
glibc = 2.2.5 is needed by locales-
glibc = 2.2.5 is needed by locales-

I can't go anywhere unless I upgrade my glibc to > 2.3. The programs I want to install are clanlib2-0.6.5-9mdk and pingus-0.6.0-5mdk. Somebody please help me out of this endless spiral of dependencies!!
