Will yum remove mysql-server delete my databases?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – My MySQL server has broken down, and I can't figure out why. Trying to do a yum reinstall I get this: Error: mysql-server conflicts with mysql-server I figure that's because the server already had the mysql server, and when I ran the upgrade, everything got messed up. I'm unable to access MySQL, so I can't even do a mysqldump. How can I reinstall without compromising my existing databases? (HowTos)
