Description of problem:
I'm using a combination of rhnreg_ks in a kickstart file and firstboot for a
desktop deployment. firstboot nags my users to register even though they're
already registered. Should be a pretty simple fix - just add a class similar to
NoNetworkPage that checks rhnreg.registered().
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5.1, firstboot-126.96.36.199-1, rhn-client-tools-0.4.16-2.el5_1.9
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a kickstart with a combination of:
in the %post section
Firstboot nags the user to register when they boot for the first time.
Firstboot should thank the user for registering with RHN.
