Reading the whole page it states:

"A) The RPMs that start with "python2.4" are built to not interfere with
the system Python. They install as "/usr/bin/python2.4" and will not
conflict with the system Python unless you are running on a system that
ships the a version of Python which has the same major/minor number."
