[TriLUG] safest way to revert to a previous package

When I try to install using rpm -ihv --oldpackage <filename>
I get the following:
file /sbin/rpc.statd from install of nfs-utils-1.0.6-31EL conflicts with
file from package nfs-utils-1.0.6-33EL
When I try to do an rpm -e this is what I get:
error: Failed dependencies:
nfs-utils is needed by (installed) redhat-config-nfs-1.0.13-6
What are my alternative here?
