You can find out if you run the sysvinit editor. Look at runlevel 5 and the 'start' section. Scroll to see if anything rhn is running. If not, on the left you can scroll untill you see it and drag it to the startup area you were just looking at. You'll need to have an account (free) setup with redhat to use the up2date utility, which is ultimately how you update redhat.
