Looks like you've got an old version of glibc; update it, and everything
should be fine.
Your install of wine, or at least some component of it, is looking for a
specific version of the glibc library, and it's not there; hence, it
refuses to complete loading, so it fails to run. You don't want to force
it, as the linkages would be all wrong.
Mandrake 9.1, if I recall right, was a glibc 2.2-based system; 10.0, I
*think* was the first version that used 2.3 (it might have been 9.2, but
it seems a bit odd to do that and not increment the major version at the
same time; new versions of glibc are pretty major changes). Don't rely
on me for good knowledge of release numbers; I run Cooker, so I'm almost
*never* running an 'actual' release :-)
Another alternative is to recompile wine so that it is built for your
specific configuration, but that might be more complicated, especially
if you're not familiar with building from source.

No problem; hope this helps!
