I suggested the --force just in case the RPM database already had the
yum package registered, but the package was corrupt.
I agree with your statement that --force should be only used if you

I suggested that the OP gets the packages for 5.2, since his install
seems to be closer to a 5.2 than a 5.3. That way he may end up getting

Using /5/ (CentOS 5.3) is also doable, but the number of packages he
will have to download and install manually will certainly be larger.
