glib is (as rpm -qi glib will tell you) a set of underlying libraries 
for GTK (among other things)
the difference is that glib is for GTK version 1.2.10 (used by xmms and 
some other older apps) and glib2 is for GTK version 2, used by most of 
the newer GTK and GNOME apps.

ps. please answer to the list, and not just someone who answers you 
questions - it makes it easier for others either following the list or 
easrching the archives. Oh and if you can, please bottom-post. :-)
