THis is what is going on at the terminal when It comes time to see the up2date license agreement
[root@webpchat root]# up2date

. But I am able to continue with the up2date process. However when it comes time to submit my account information IE register I get , "problem with username".
I went to the redhat website and created an account. I went back and lauched up2date and same thing .. I made sure I entered my newly created account information correctly.
Do I need to install ssh2? Do I need to pay to use that up2date
__EDIT.... I guess it looks like I have to pay for this.. so can I still install new kernels and stuff or not until I pay.. Sorry if this is lame but I am new.
you can entitle your system in your account once the profile has been created as a demo account.
Well maybe it has changed but I'm not aware of it. I have been using it for years and decided to pay for an entitlement, I guess a free one came with it because I can do two now. You can also switch entitlements. You just need to login to manage the account.
RedHat changed their certificate so you will need to download and install the new one. Should be on the first user login page at rhnw

it's perfectly safe to run this version of up2date. redhat just changed their security certificates (well a little while ago actually) which is why you needed to install new versions of up2date. when you got to the rhn login screen you should have seen the notice on the right of the username/password fields of that page.
Thanks for your replies. Unfortunately I do not know what a cron job is I assume its like load this process at a certain time?
After getting the updated certificates from RH, I was able to run the update and get all the updated packages. When I ran the updater, the GUI hung but there was alot of HDD activitity for the next 20 minutes. I looked at top and showed up2date was running and using cpu cycles... after the HDD activity stopped and the up2date process stopped.. I rebooted and everything is was still working. I also checked the RH updater again and the only package left was the kernel.. I updated and installed that and rebooted . SO I am assuming that the updates were installed even though the GUI portion crashed while the install was happening ( I am doing all the administration through a VNC connection) Everything still works except when I try to view things in category view. (I am not sure if category view worked before the updates)
a cron job is just like a task schedular. you can schedule tasks by the hour, day, week, month. look in your /etc directory. you'll see cron directories in there were you'll have some scripts set up by red hat to run already.
