System Updater Crashes

Just installed RHEL5, and off the bat, I get this when trying to update via command line yum, or via the Software Updater GUI yum frontend.

Component: pirut
Summary: TB3518121c ERROR: can not find RHNS CA file: /usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT

Traceback (most recent call last):

No idea how to fix this, also... Add/Remove Software does the exact same thing.

Apparently the required certificate is not found. I suggest talking to Redhat, since you've paid. You have paid, haven't you ?
