RHN does not pick up all of my hardware

Description of problem:
RHN will not read all the hardware for this machine, and some that it does read
it reads incorrects. For example, I have 3 IDE hard drives in my system,
/dev/hde thru /dev/hdg. /dev/hde is read correctly. /dev/hdf is reported as
/dev/hda, and /dev/hdg is ignored all together. I switched sound cards from a
SB128 PCI to a SB32 ISA and even tho I did a hardware refresh (which says it
completed successfully) it still reports the PCI card. NONE of my SCSI devices
are reported, and the SCSI card is not detected either. Also missing is my
network card and my Promise IDE controller.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check RHN hardware list
2. Schedule hardware refresh, and watch for it to complete
3. Check RHN hardware list again, hardware still incorrect
Actual Results: As described
Expected Results: New/correct hardware should be picked up
Additional info: My RHN account is under username "kgabriel". The system in
question is "talos.therealms".
RHN depends on kudzu for hardware scanning. I suggest you run kudzu on the
affected machine and then schedule again a hardware refresh - kudzu should pick
up the new hardware you have in your box and report it back to RHN correctly.
Let us know if this still fails.
Have you tried this yet?
