For mysql package, that is perfectly OK. mysql.i386 has 32-bit libs,
mysql.x86_64 has 64-bit libs.
/var/lib/mysql isn't part of mysql package. It's part of mysql-server
package. Therefore, uninstalling mysql package isn't likely to fix
anything. However, if David still wants to do it, the right option to
use is --allmatches (as documented in rpm man page).
Now, before doing anything drastic. David, do you have SELinux
running on the box? If so, is there anything logged in
/var/log/messages when you attempt to start MySQL? Also, it'd be
interesting to see output of "ls -lZd / /var /var/lib /var/lib/mysql".
