Transaction Check Error:   file /etc/samba/smb.conf from install of samba-common-3.0.28-1.el5_2.1 conflicts with file from package samba-common-3.0.25b-0.el5.4

I tried to remove the old one by command

# rpm -e samba-common-3.0.25b-0.el5.4

it says error: "samba-common-3.0.25b-0.el5.4" specifies multiple packages
