Centos uses yum instead of RHN for updates, so you'll probably need something 
different for this.  You  might look at whatever ClearOS is doing - they have 
both free updates and a paid subscription support model - with mostly-Centos 
packages under the covers.  Earlier versions imposed some limits on use in the 
free version but now I think the subscription is more about extra 
service-related features.
