Just in case you want the steps:-

Steps to convert a CentOS5 system to RHEL5

 ssh $SYSTEM
 rpm -e --nodeps centos-release
 rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release
 rpm -ivh rhn-setup-0.4.19-17.el5.noarch.rpm 
rhn-client-tools-0.4.19-17.el5.noarch.rpm rhnsd-4.6.1-1.el5.$ARCH.rpm \
yum-rhn-plugin-0.5.3-30.el5.noarch.rpm rhnlib-2.2.6-2.el5.noarch.rpm \
     pyOpenSSL-0.6-1.p24.7.2.2.$ARCH.rpm \   

Follow the prompts, after registering the system with redhat:-

 yum -y update
