Description of problem:
openssl097a 32-bit compatibility libraries not available in 64-bit repository.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to do "yum install openssl097a.i386" on a x86_64 machine
2. see it fail
openssl097a.i386 not installed

openssl097a-0.9.7a-9.x86_64.rpm without any force flags, so there are no
compatibility problems preventing you from installing the rpm.

This 32 bit package will land in the x86_64 trees in the upcoming release of RHEL 5.4.
