You can e.g. unpack FC1 glibc into some subtree and run the game against
that glibc instead.
1) make sure vdso=0 is passed on the kernel command line
2) mkdir ~/fc1glibc; cd ~/fc1glibc; rpm2cpio ~/glibc-2.3.2-101.4.i686.rpm | cpio -id
3) run the game with
~/fc1glibc/lib/ld-linux.so.2 --library-path ~/fc1glibc/lib /the/game arguments

You can also try booting 2.4 kernel instead of 2.6 one.
