linux systems must also be connected to internet right?
If you want to get online updates from the RedHat network, then you'd obviously need a network connection, and an Internet connection, so you could attach to it. There ARE ways, as yancek pointed out, that will let you not have a direct internet connection, but you would need SOME server (RedHat satellite server), that you could reach on your network. That server will essentially be a mirror to the external RedHat network.
If you're using RedHat enterprise, then you need to CALL REDHAT SUPPORT, since you're paying for it with your RHEL subscription. If you're not, then you probably won't be able to get updates/patches/etc.
