That's basically not how rpm and yum work. When ever there is a newer
version of a package yum thinks it the right thing to install it. If you
want different versions you have to give the packages different names -
e.g. python2.7 and python2.5 (note that the version number is part of
the name whole package would be python2.7-2.7.3-7.rpm)
