"rpm -e ypbind" Fails because yp-tools depends on it. But if I try to erase
yp-tools first and then ypbind, I also get an error because yp-tools
depends on it.

I think this is a bug, and probably should be fixed by the mantainers of
the .rpm files for both packages. If this were not a bug, then both
packages should be joined in just one package.

I'm using ypbind-3.3-24.i386.rpm yp-tools-2.3-2.i386.rpm
