The compat-glibc packages from Centos4 are glibc 2.3.2 not 2.3.3. If you 
can successfuly do a rpm -q glibc-compat or rpm -ql glibc-compat then 
they're installed. Unfortunately it looks like you need glibc 2.3.3 :(
You might need to look at compiling glibc-2.3.3 from source or googling 
for glibc2.3.3 and trying one of the RPMs for it from another distro 
(definately something to try on a test machine first!).
