This (the subscription alert) only happens if the install is done
without a network connected and we have been working on this issue.  The
fix we had for CentOS-3.x doesn't work with CentOS-4.x.  I thought we
had fixed it, but it looks like under certain conditions it is still
alive and well.

The key import feature imports the CentOS key, not the RedHat Key.

I am not a python programmer, but I am trying to fix these issues ... or
to make them more clear.

We have made a lot of progress with up2date in CentOS-4 (it doesn't say
Red Hat Network in almost all places, all the menu items have been
corrected, etc.)  Also, every time RH changes up2date, I have to
reverify all the current patches .. as there are changes in the back end

We will keep chugging along on this and all the other issues, thanks for
your input :)
