[Yum] problem with installing RPMs for x86_586 arch

I'm trying to install some RPMs that have the x86_586 arch (these are
from MontaVista Linux). Note, as far as I can see the x86_586 arch is
something 'non-standard'?

However, whatever I try, it seems yum cannot install these RPMs and
they are not found using a 'search'.

I can manually install these RPMs by using
TransactionSet.setProbFilter(rpm.RPMPROB_FILTER_IGNOREARCH) from the
rpm.TransactionSet python binding.

Any idea how I would get yum to see and install these RPMs?

Thanks in advance,

Jeroen Janssen
