[CentOS] x86_64 rpms

I have just loaded up CentOS4.1 on a PE1850 with twin Intel x86_64's.

When I came to clean out those packages I didn't want (because some always
creep in however careful you are), apart from those with dependencies, I
notice a lot of cases where there are two packages of the same name
installed - one clearly an x86 package and one an x86_64 package.

eg apr

Is this intentional and if it is, how do I remove using rpm -e those
packages with duplicate modules without removing those that will break
dependencies?

TIA

John
