Yes a PPro is an i686.  What happened to you is that the original install
used the i686 RPM.  When you upgraded using the i386 RPM, it assumed it
was upgrading from an old i386 version and failed to properly clean up the
old files.  The below bug explains that (a) they will fix the problem in a
future release and (b) how you can dig your way out of the hole you are in
using a rescue CD (i.e., boot the first install CD and type "linux rescue"
at the first prompt).
