Dang.  I had this issue during my upgrading FC5 to FC6 the past couple of
days, and can't find what I did exactly, as I also had other issues.

As part of upgrading, I found that my RPM database was corrupt (it crashed
on me) and I rebuilt it, and then did the upgrade.  Hmm, the double python
may have been before the upgrade.  You might try saving the RPM database
files (cp /var/lib/rpm .) and rebuilding it (rpm --rebuilddb).  Maybe the
old Python will go away.

"rpm -V python-2.4.3-18.fc6" and see if it seems intact.  If it is just a
vestige, "rpm -e --justdb python-2.4.3-18.fc6", though if the RPM database
is corrupt it may blow up then (make a copy first).  If it is all there,
try removing it normally with "rpm -e python-2.4.3-18.fc6".  You could even
try removing all Pythons and then re-installing the newer one, but you'll
want to have the new RPM on hand as yum needs Python to work (RPM does not).
