I am running Centos 4.2 x86_64.

When I do "yum update", it shows these packages:

 Package                 Arch       Version          Repository        Size
 compat-openldap         i386       2.1.30-4         update            219 k

 openssl-devel           x86_64     0.9.7a-43.4      update            1.6 M

 ruby-libs               i386       1.8.1-7.EL4.2    update            1.5 M
 util-linux              x86_64     2.12a-16.EL4.12  update            1.5 M
 xloadimage              x86_64     4.1-36.RHEL4     update            108 k

Why does it show both the i386 and the x86_64 version of some packages?  Is
this normal?  Should I let it update both of them?
