since you don't have a RHN subscription I would suggest migrating to CentOS. See the
"Migration an existing system from RHEL5 to CentOS 5" section in

The procedure appears to be quite quick and painless.

Move to centos could be a very good solution for our problem.I think Redhat version 5.4 is outdated .If you dont have subscripion go ahead with Centos 6.2 Box.Which you can have support for 7 years

As per the excellent advice above, DON'T try to fool around with prod servers like that.
You have 3 reasonable options

1. get RHN subscription
2. switch over to Centos
3. leave it alone
