YUM - php-mcrypt installation problem

Hi, I am trying to install php-mcrypt and when I run
yum install php-mcrypt

Open in new window

I get the following error:

--> Running transaction check

Does anyone have any ideas of getting the mcrypt working and/or working around this problem so that my client can run Magento?

The server is running CenotOS 5, with PHP 5.3.
