    What is causing the apt-get to think db3 is installed? is it thinking that?
    do i need to uninstall the db4.i386 ?

    for met it looks more like apt is not properly installed on your machine, if I see errors like this:

    but if you are running rhel (and not any clone) why don't you use the shipped up2date?
