How To Get Automatic Updates To RH 3.0

Hi All. For some reason we do not get automatic updates. We are RH Enterprise 3 I have a blue circle with a check mark all the time. If I click on it I get a message checking for updates but nothing happens. If right click on it I see Launch Up2Date etc but they are not highlighted and cannot be clicked on. The only thing I can click on is EXIT. If I get into terminal mode and type UP2DATE all fixes come in and updates work great. On my desktop I get a red dot with a flashing exclamation point to indicate updates available. Can someone please help as I am a real newbie? Thanks all.

Is this an official support and licensed version? If so, use your registration information to sign up with the RHN on to get updates for this install of Redhat. Either you can get the updates from Redhat or get them from a mirror using yum or the like. If its official, I'd suggest getting them from Redhat though so you know its compatible with your existing install and configurations.
