Description of problem:
i'm totally new to linux, and decided to give the 30 day trial a go. i registered at the redhat site, downloaded RHEL 4 ES and got it running and set up fine. but then i realised that my current memory wasnt sufficient when i tried getting oracle 10g running. so i added some extra RAM, and reformatted the pc, so that i could do a fresh install of both linux and oracle. but now when i try to update(using up2date) it says that i've already used up my system entitlement, and cannot update, when its just the same machine with extra memory. both times when i installed RHEL4 i provided my username, password and also system information during the install process. i cant do anything right now, with the way my pc is. am i in violation of the demo license by reinstalling it on the same machine?

persists please enter a bug report at bugzilla.redhat.com.
If you choose to submit the bug report, please be sure to include

You will need to go to the entitlement page and remove the system that's already
there in order to reuse it.
To do this, go to https://rhn.redhat.com, log in, click on the 'Systems' tab in
the menu at the top of the page, click on your machine, then click "delete system".
Once the deletion has completed, you should then be able to use that entitlement
for your reinstalled machine.
