You probably have to boot into a livecd and manually put the files of the glibc rpm on your harddisk, after you have mounted it from the livecd.
Try to take a livecd that has rpm installed (for example, don't take one that is debian-based, they use apt which is different)
Either by extracting manually the files in the rpm and mv them to the good directory.
Or there's probably an option in rpm to install to a different directory:
rather that installing to / (which would be the / of the livecd), put the files to the root of /mnt/my_broken_fc3

Sorry I'm not familiar with rpm but the method is general among linux, just the packaging system is different.

Why do you still run fc3 and don't consider upgrading?
