Installing the RPM's is not the problem.

The problem is that when you go to the RedHat site and register a retail
product, it adds one (1) to the account's "entitlement" count.

When you got to the RedHat site and register a Dell/Redhat product, you
don't get an additional "entitlement".

In order for a system to be used with RHN, that system must be "entitled".

Why do I not get an entitlement with Dell/RedHat Linux like I do with the
retail product?
