[Yum] i586 packages on an x86_64 machine

Hi folks,

I'm using yum to update an x86_64 machine, and one of the repositories it's
using is shared with some i686 machines. I'm trying to get yum to install Sun's
j2sdk package, built for the i586, and yum installs it correctly on the i686

On the x86_64 machine, though, yum acts like the j2sdk package isn't there. I
assume that's because it's an i586 package and yum thinks it isn't compatible.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? The machines are all running yum-2.0.7, as
packaged with Fedora Core 2.
