Should have posted this earlier. This is my
etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources list:

What I don't understand is how the rhn icon gets
directed to the repositories.

### this describes the various package repos up2date
will look into
### for packages. It currently supports apt-rpm repos,
yum repos, 
### and "dir" repos


### format is one repo entry per line, # starts
comments, the
### first word on each line is the type of repo. 
                                                      
                           
### the defalt rhn (using "default" as the url means 
### use the one in the up2date config file
#up2date default

### When a channel-label is required for the non
up2date repo's,
### the label is soley used as an internal identifier
and is not
### based on the url or any other info from the repo. 

### an apt style repo, this time arjanv's 2.6 kernel
repo
### format is:
### type  channel-label      service:server	    path  
    repo name

#apt arjan-2.6-kernel-i386 http://people.redhat.com
~arjanv/2.5/ kernel

### Note that for apt repos, there can be multiple
repo names specificed
### space seperated. 

### an yum style repo 
### format:
### type  channel-label     url 


yum fedora-core-2
ftp://mirror.hiwaay.net/redhat/fedora/linux/core/2/i386/os/
yum updates-released
ftp://mirror.hiwaay.net/redhat/fedora/linux/core/updates/2/i386/
#yum updates-testing
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/1/i386/


#yum fedora-core-1
#http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-1
#yum updates-released
#http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/released/fedora-core-1
#yum updates-testing
#http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/testing/fedora-core-1

### an local directory full of packages
### format
#dir my-favorite-rpms-i386-9 /var/spool/RPMS/


# multiple versions of all repos except "up2date" can
be used. Depenencies
# can be resolved "cross-repo" if need be.
