I had a lunar update crash and not I get this message from almost 
everything I try (including trying to log in as root at the console 
after a reboot to single user mode).

/lib/ symbol _nss_files_parse_pwent, version 
GLIBC_2.0 not defined in the file with link time reference

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If no one has any idea 
how to do a quick recovery, please tell me how I can do a re-install 
from CDROM without hosing everything.
