[R] ordering of levels.

Have the following factors with the following levels.
 rank rank rank rank rank log log log rank sqrt sqrt sqrt log log rank
 rank rank sqrt sqrt sqrt sqrt log log log log sqrt none none none none
 none none none none sqrt none
Levels: log none rank sqrt
I would like to add an ordering to the levels.
I tried with
tmp$norm <-factor(tmp$norm,labels = c("none","sqrt","log","rank"),ordered=T)
 log log log log log none none none log rank rank rank none none log
 log log rank rank rank rank none none none none rank sqrt sqrt sqrt sqrt
 sqrt sqrt sqrt sqrt rank sqrt
Levels: none < sqrt < log < rank
But this is not what I would like to have because the command not only superimposes an ordering but also changes the factors!
