first off rpmforge has a LOT of incompatible with RHN rpm's
you really DO need to install and CONFIGURE!!!! "yum-plugin-priorities"

use the redhat knowlagebase

login to redhat with the user name you set up when you registered the install you paid for
https://access.redhat.com/knowledgebase/
and search

you bought the REQUIRED support contract
so you might want to use it

or
install the free rebuild of redhat
CentOS

What you're trying to do is immaterial; if you're using Red Hat Enterprise, you need to PAY FOR IT. Otherwise, all you're going to have is an unstable, unpatched system, that's harder to work with. You DO NOT get bugfixes, security updates, or patches unless you PAY FOR THEM. If your only goal is to learn, then stop where you are, and load the latest version of CentOS instead....it's 99.x% IDENTICAL to RHEL, but totally FREE.

And if you want to use rpmforge or create your own local repository, did you try to look these things up? Read the documentation?? Doing basic research on your own is always the best, first step:

then FIRST
Install the yum plugin
Code:
su -
yum install yum-plugin-priorities
then SECOND
edit the rhn repo and updates ( they are text files but you need to be root to edit them )

add to it
"priority=N" where N is 1 to 99
with 1 the HIGHEST priority
set rpmforge at 99
set rhn to 1
you DO NOT!!!!!! want rpmforge replace critical system files with INCOMPATIBLE VERSIONS !!!!!!

you do realize that rpmforge and EPEL are 2 different(!) repo sets?

FWIW EPEL is far less likely to bork your system (imho), but in any case DO use yum-plugin-priorities FIRST or you'll regret it...
