Is this rhnreg_ks during kickstart instead on yum -y update afterwards?
In my case, I noticed Anaconda or whatever sets up /etc/mtab during 
install in such a manner that grubby is confused.

So I "egrep '(\/sysimage |\/sysimage\/boot)' /etc/mtab | sed -r -e 
's/\/mnt\/sysimage(\/)?/\//' /etc/mtab >/mnt/sysimage/etc/mtab" and run 
our Satellite registration chrooted to /mnt/sysimage.
