I'm not exactly sure how this works but this might prove useful to you.
should just have to substitute package name and version....

I figured out how to solve this, and while the answer is likely
obvious to most people, I will describe what I did for the less linux
savvy folks like myself.
1) Booted off the rescue disc (FC2 install disc 1), and typed linux rescue
2) Chose to boot off cd-rom and pretty much selected all the defaults
3) chroot .mnt/sysimagen at the first command prompt
4) this allowed me to use apt-get like normal, but for some reason the
exact command that Mark provided told me that there was no package
named libselinux-devel so...
5) apt-get install libselinux=1.19.3-1_1.rhfc2.at which downgraded it
6) apt-get install libselinux-devel=1.19.3-1_1.rhfc2.at which downgraded it
Now my box is working, but a BIG QUESTION!!!!!!!
How do I make sure that apt never tries to upgrade this package again?
It is a hassle to upgrade package by package instead of doing apt-get
dist-upgrade. Then again, if that is going to break my system, that
is the biggest pain. Does this mean that I have to upgrade to fc3
sooner than I was planning?
Anyways, hats off to Mark for leading me in the right direction.
Sorry for posting this elsewhere and checking google, and not the
archives. I thought I completely hosed my system, but hey, what fun
would myth be without the occasional moments of panic and then
