Need to add i386 packages to my x86_64 server on RHEL 6
 
What repos do I add to be able to install i386 packages on RHEL6?

they should be already in the repos
assuming rhel behaves the same as fedora (they are both redhat based systems)
the command would be
# yum install {package_name}.i386
or
# yum install {package_name}.i686

at least that was how it worked last time i tried

does not seem to be the case here... I can do a yum search on kernel-devel but only .x86_64. If I try to yum install kernel-devel.i386 it does not find it...

kernel-devel is the headers for compiling against the running kernel, you can't be running both an i386 kernel and an x86_64 kernel at the same time, nor do you need to, however OTHER packages (such as libraries) might have i386 versions
