No I haven't registered, at least not as part of the install.

System --> RHN Registration

has no result. Nothing pops up.

The same is true of

I have an acknowledgement of my order saying "Your Red Hat subscription is now 
It also gives me an acct. # and Contract #.

When I received the acknowledgement, I was also able to log into my acct. at
redhat.com. So that end should be okay.
