Expected Results: up2date should have allowed me to register the machine under the supplied account details.
The machine is a fresh install, done yesterday. It does not have X installed. It is Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 3).
Installing X and gnome seems to have fixed the problem.
