Well, perhaps not as well as I would prefer.  There are a lot of file 
conflicts reported by yum update that obviously are related to the rpm for 
the "other" architecture.  For example:

dbus-0.62-0.2.fc5.x86_64. 100% |=========================|  17 kB    00:00
---> Package dbus.x86_64 0:0.62-0.2.fc5 set to be updated
--> Running transaction check

There are MANY of those. How do I avoid those "conflicts" so that the update 
can proceed?
