[Soekris] C lib update gone bad on 4526 system, boot failure

I have an embarassing question here because I really goofed something up.
I have a 4526 running pebble 0.9. It is a Metrix Mark 1 system if you are
familiar with them.
It boots from a 64mb compact flash that is soldered to the board. I was
attempting to update the C library on the CF. I installed the new lib and
changed the libc-so.6 pointer to point to the new library. Now the kernal
panics and hangs during init when it tries to do a disk check, complaining
that GLIBC_PRIVATE can't be found. The POST passes and LILO starts up.
I don't know enough Linux yet to figure this out. If you have some advice
on getting this running again, I'd sure appreciate it. The old library is
still on the CF.
Many thanks in advance,
