having trouble with yum in reference to 32 & 64 bit libs

I have been trying to install kdelibs (the I386 ones) so that I can then install qtella p2p sharing program, the thing is when I try and install the i386 kde libs with yum install ... it initially gets all the dependancies and fails during its test run phase owing to the fact that there are certain 64bit kdelibs packages that conflict. I thought that yum was supposed to be able to handle installing 32 & 64 bit files on fedora 2?

Im also wandering what is the best way to set up fedora 2 so that I can install 32 and 64 bit stuff when needed?

Also does anyone no if apt-get is biarch compatible yet? or has any other useful advice or suggestions in this area

One final thing .... here is the command I run and the error
yum install kdelibs

Hi, Ive got things running reasnably okay at the minute, however as mentioned Im using fedora core 2 and sometimes its necessary to install certain apps as 32 bit as some of the time they are more stable.

For instance for a while there I was having hassle installing DC++ on linux , so i looked around and found LDC, the thing is the 64bit version was only in development but the i386 32 bit rpm was stable. The problem with installing the i386 version was that it required qt and was conflicting with my 64 bit version qt libs so I forced the rpm and installed it into a folder 32bit/qt the added /32bit/qt/lib to and then ldcc installed and is working well. I no what Im saying is a slight diversion from my original post but it is to highlight my reasoning behind wanting an efficient way to install 32 and 64 bit apps on the fedora core 2 as occasionally it is required. Also Is there any way of telling what apps are 32bit and what are 64 , in reference to the apps installed during the fedora core 2 initial installation?
