I am trying to install the RPM kernel on my system to get XFS support on
a redhat 7.2. I am unable to install it because I have newer kernel.

[root ~]# rpm -ivh kernel-smp-2.4.9-31SGI_XFS_1.1.i686.rpm 
Preparing...           ###########################################
[100%]
package kernel-smp-2.4.9-34 (which is newer than
 kernel-smp-2.4.9-31SGI_XFS_1.1) is already installed

Can I override this option while maintaining the 2.4.9-34smp (just in
case) or I have to override the newer 2.4.9-34smp kernel. How to
override the installation (-force do the trick)? If I force the RPM to
install can I still boot from the 2.4.9-34smp kernel.  

How about if I boot to the old kernel (2.4.7) and try to install
kernel-smp-2.4.9-31SGI_XFS_1.1.i686.rpm, will this work and the
installation will stop complaining?

My lilo.conf file, output of lsmond, and current kernel is:

Red Hat Linux release 7.2 (Enigma)
