I get a similar conflict attempting to install bcm5820-1.17.6.i386 on a system 
with kernel-2.4.20-20.7. 
[root@D1005 root]# rpm --rebuilddb
[root@D1005 root]# rpm -q kernel
[root@D1005 root]# rpm -q bcm5820-1.17-6.i386.rpm
package bcm5820-1.17-6.i386.rpm is not installed
[root@D1005 root]# rpm -i bcm5820-1.17-6.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        bcm5820 < 1.81 conflicts with kernel-2.4.20-20.7
Where is bcm1.81? It's not on RHN or anywhere else I looked.
The version on RHN is bcm5820-1.17-6.
