what version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux is this with? 

what version of the client (ie, output of `rpm -q up2date`)?

I am working with RHEL 4 update 5 AS - 2.9.6-55 ELsmp and I am getting error "Problem registering username".
I know my login is correct and password is as well. When I am on that screen after completion of Disks 1-4 of my installation, I rebooted and started the continued setup and activation portion of the installation. I entered my username and password and clicked "Next".  I get an onscreen popup stating there was a problem with firstboot.py module.
I clicked "Ok" and went to the next Subscription screen.  I tried to enter my Active unused subscription number and I get the popup of "Problem registering username".  I have already opened a support ticket with Redhat and am trying to work through it.  I also attempted to use the option of Use existing active subscription and I get the same error... "Problem reg ...".
See RH Support Case# 1888716 if you have access or can get a tech to reference it.
