Is there any way to 'force' a yum install/update?

Is there any way to force a yum install or update to work even when it
normally fails because of some errors?

I am trying to install a 32-bit version of a library on a 64-bit
system and it fails only because the manual pages conflict with the
already installed 64-bit library manual pages.  Since they're probably
the same manual pages (and anyway I'm not going to read them) is there
any way I can tell yum to ignore the errors and install anyway?
