How do I stay at a certain release level and not be automatically upgraded?

How do I stay at a release level (RHEL 5.4) and not automatically be upgraded? I'd like to continue to receive updates that pertained to 5.4 though.

Right. It's been awhile since I explored this with Red Hat, but - last I checked - staying on a particular minor version (i.e. continuing to receive updates for it) requires a special license. Talk to your RH sales guy or gal.
