Description of problem:
rpm, at least when used casually, complains too much about
installation issues.  It may be a package prob (kernel vs kernel-BOOT), or a
packaging problem (ie no way to mark those
2 as mutually exclusive), or an rpm problem (has enough info
to silence these complaints, but doesnt do so)

[root@homer rpms]# rpm -U *.rpm
        package kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0 is already installed
        file /boot/System.map-2.4.18-27.8.0 from install of kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0
conflicts with file from package kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0
        file /boot/config-2.4.18-27.8.0 from install of kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0
conflicts with file from package kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0

[root@homer rpms]# ls kernel-*
kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0.i386.rpm       kernel-doc-2.4.18-27.8.0.i386.rpm
kernel-BOOT-2.4.18-27.8.0.i386.rpm  kernel-source-2.4.18-27.8.0.i386.rpm

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download all updates/8.0/en/i386/*
2. cd to local dir
3. rpm -U *.rpm

Expected Results:  i expected the 'already installed' message

Additional info:

There is no way in general for rpm to understand what kernel is intended
when you do
    rpm -Uvh yadda/yadda/kernel*.rpm
Install the kernel that you want manually.
