[CentOS] corrupt rpm problem

Install Centos 4.1 X86-64 onto an athlon64 box.
unfortunately half way through a yum -y upgrade I press ctrl-c on the
wrong window and aborted a couple of the packages in the (large) update.
Now the rpm database things there are multiple packages installed on the
same rpm versions,
>rpm -q -a | grep mysql
rpm -e mysqlclient10-3.23.58-4.RHEL4.1
error: "mysqlclient10-3.23.58-4.RHEL4.1" specifies multiple packages
So I tried a "yum clean all" and tried again but yum fails with a
transaction check error with conflicts of rpms onthemselves.
I did a rpm --rebuilddb with no joy, and i deleted the __db files from
/var/lib/rpm - still no joy.
I cn't install any rpms now as it says there are conflicts....
I am fresh out of ideas now...
Any help appreciated...
