I really appreciate all your responses since I started this thread.
I am just worried about my installation number when I re-install my linux(30Day-Eval)version.Do I have to get another installation nuber or keep the same installation number while re-install the RHEL-5?
Ps:Any idea why I am getting an error message while I am trying to follow that URL to register my system that "installation number can only be installed by the installer".
I have re-installed the CD's and connected to the RHN at post installation and now everything is working.
I think what caused all the problem was when I previously installed it,I installed it with minimum softwares and I was trying the internet connectivity using my Netgear wireless adapter(which never worked!!!).
This time around I tried with ethernet cable and selected the option CUSTOMIZE NOW for the s/w installations.
I have the same problem, with this strange yum error, I'am a RHN registered user, and the system is a 2.6.18-92.1.1.el5xen red hat enterprise 5.
Googling with the error, I've found that installing a package named epel should remove the problem, but actually it didn't (even after restarting the yum-updatesd service).
I noticed this problem after updating the kernel to this version.
This is what i get when i do update:
# yum update
Loading "security" plugin
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin

Ah, since this computer works also as a server the option reinstalling the system is not in consideration
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks in advice
Unfortunately my account does not comprehend the telephonic help, but just the updates (as the phone lady said) which I can't obtain because yum is messed up. That's life!
Nevertheless after a huge googling, I've found out several issues with the same output error (fedora ,redhat and centOS), and basically are all related to a conflict between rpm and yum.
What i did was to rebuild the rpm database, and update one by one all the yum-related rpms. Now it seems that there's a conflict between yum-184.108.40.206.el5_2.1 and a plugin yum-rhn-plugin. This emerges after the reinstalling of yum packages. Now I don't really know what to do because yum, without this plugin works , but has lost the rhn repo file.
I also tried to downgrade the yum files, but this as a consequence, creates other problems.
Finally I also tried to build from source the yum-rhn-plugin with the obvious reappearance of the old problem.
