xsane-gimp, need some libs.

i was trying to install xsane-gimp (plugin) via YUM.  i recieved a 
message from the terminal that it was installed, but when i try using it 
with gimp, i get the xsane program loading up and it tells me that there 
is a problem.  same problem i looked up on the internet; failed to open 
device, invalid argument.  link = 

so that tells me it should work.  so i went to RPMfind.net and found 
some back/front-ends, long story short i downloaded xsane-grip, 
backends, frontends, and they were all installed except xsane-grip which 
YUM claimed was installed.  when i tried to install xsane-grip RPM -ivh 
and -Uvh told me the following:
[root@localhost rpm-noarch]# rpm -Uvh xsane*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by xsane-gimp-0.99-2.2.i386

So i have the rpm installer telling me that i am missing libraries 
(lib.so.6 (glibc), libcairo.so.2, and libpangocairo-1.0.so.0), and i 
have YUM telling me it is installed, and i have GIMP choking.  I tried 
searching for glibc, found it, wouldn't install.  from what i'm seeing, 
it doesn't look like lib.so.6 comes in glibc anyway.  anyone know where 
i can find it?
