[SciPy-user] failure to build scipy on RHEL5

Paul - Thanks!  I took a first crack at installing these, and started  
with BLAS.

When I do "sudo rpm -i blas-3.1.1-2.el5.x86_64.rpm", I get a bunch of  
conflicts...

I then tried "sudo rpm -q blas" and was returned:
blas-3.0-37.el5
blas-3.0-37.el5

I'm not terribly familiar with RH, as I use Ubuntu at home, does this  
mean I have two instances of BLAS 3.0 already installed?  If so, is it  
safe to use rpm to remove them?
