No need to remove up2date, although you can if you want to. Keeping itwon't hurt anything. You might want to use the CentOS repositories since CentOS is a RHEL compatible distro (built from the RH SRPMs with the Red Hat logos etc. removed). I think there are instructions for setting up Yum ontheir site.
