[CentOS] rpm question

When I install some RPMS like openoffice 3 on centos x85_64
is there some command that will leave all the actual files alone (leave 
them installed)
but just remove the RPM name from the RPM database so centos now things 
the packages are not installed?

Reason is I was wanting to do this so a next yum update does not get all 
confused...
and the yum update happens just like I never installed openoffice 3.

is there a way to do that ?
