:)  Yes, that is a concern.  For good or bad, I don't use their
support offerings too often. Their turnaround time is 24 hours, and
just about every technical question I've had has been much more
thoroughly dissected here on this list. The switch to an official
RHEL4 is mainly for procedural compliance. I.e., bring it under
Satellite control so that we can manage patches and generate reports.
Luckily it is a VMWare machine so my intention is to clone the CentOS
image, do all the conversion work, then attempt to register it.
