 Right. Likely you have something that requires both, Eg. a .x86_64
package which requires bzip2-libs and an i686 package which requires
the same library.
 You can work out which packages require them a number of ways, the
easiest is to just try removing them (Eg. 
yum --assumeno remove bzip2-libs.i686).
