Is the webserver accessible from outside your network? Did you apply all
the usual updates? (RH 6.2 is vulnerable to some very well known
Paul's right in saying that RH6.2 is a glibc system, but I think you can
install "compatibility" libraries for libc5 stuff. Netscape probably
depends on it for one.
Either that, or your system has been hit by a trojan that tried to
install a libc5 executable in inittab perhaps or somewhere deep in the
system.. Download a boot disk (The ILUG BBC is excellent, search for
"ILUG BBC" for download locations on http://www.linux.ie/) and examine
your system through that.
It could have something to do with a runaway process chewing memory. Is
the disk trashing? Is there swap installed?
