How do I install glib 2.1 for Blackdown JDK on RH6.0

How do I install glib 2.1 for Blackdown JDK on RH6.0. Their 1.2.2 RC3 JDK needs glib 2.1.x and I do not want to 'break' the rest of my Redhat install.

I will tell you what another expert told me on installing a new version of glib. They said that the best thing to do was just to buy a cheap redhat cdrom(you can get them at www.linuxmall.com for $2.00), and when it asks you if you want to upgrade the system, say yes. They claimed it was hard to upgrade. Thats what I did. However, if you don't want to do that, go to the redhat ftp site, and see if they have a rpm for glib(I think they do) and install it by typing rpm -i XXXXX.rpm

Yes, actually with 561 new rpm's in 6.1, I started to download it, but my ftp keeps getting interrupted! So I did get the 2.1 glib from RedHat and it works fine (a few warnings during install, but hey)
