Yum exclude?

I have a certain (older) version of a package that's installed, but whenever I try and yum update it tries to update that package and it breaks things. I just found out that you can modify your yum.conf to have it skip certain things.

you can do the same thing on the command line when updating:

yum --exclude=mypackage --exclude=package_depending_on_mypackage update

Note: You need to exclude the the dependent packages, too.
