Red Hat Network Problems

I just reinstalled RH8 after messing up my system trying to install nvidia drivers. I dont have the knowledge or experience to fix it, so i just reinstalled. Everything is up and running fine, but when i try to run up2date i get an error:

Error Message:
Please run rhn_register as root on this client
Error Class Code: 9
Error Class Info: Invalid Server Certificate.

I have tried running as root, doesnt work. I have also tried running rhn_register, but it says there is no such command. I think it has something to do with more than one system being registered on my RHN account, so i erased all of the systems, hoping that it would automatically create a new one and fix the problem. I still get the same error.

Any ideas on what to do? Anyone know how to change the login name for RHN?

personaly I wouldnt suguest that you use up2date. after I updated my kernel. my nvida perforamce droped by half (probley me) but the problem if i understand correctly is that you are having is that you dont have a subscription to the redhat network. This is easy to fix tho just goto and sign on with your user and password you made when you configured up2date the first time. now you should see 2 systems profiles which you named. delete your old computer profile and then change none to basic beside your current system profile.

hope this helps.
