1.2. Prerequisites
The following conditions must be met before installing Red Hat Satellite 6: 

Add the following bullets:

 * No installed Java virtual machines (Oracle, IBM, etc) other than the OpenJDK 

 * No installed Puppet RPMs
 * Ideally a freshly provisioned system that is only being used for Red Hat Satellite 6


 * A minimum of 5 GB storage for the base install of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, 300 MB for the installation of Red Hat Satellite and at least 10 GB of storage for each software repository to be synchronized in the /var filesystem

2.1. Installing Red Hat Satellite

remove note: "Note To install using only the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and MDP repositories: .."

instead make it a requirement with:

 Disable all existing repositories:

# yum-config-manager --disable *

 Enable the Satellite and Red Hat Enterprise Linux repositories by running yum-config-manager (you may need to alter the RHEL repository to match the specific version you are using):

# yum-config-manager --enable rhel-6-server-rpms rhel-server-6-satellite-6-mdp-2-rpms 

2.2. Installing Red Hat Satellite with an ISO Image

update to remove reference to 'CDROM'.  Nobody uses CD's anymore :)

 As the root user, mount the ISO image to a directory:

# mkdir /media/iso
# mount -o loop iso_filename /media/iso

Change directory to /media/iso
