Welcome to the forums, Amos!
Red Hat 8 is 7 years old already and as such I don't believe it is supported any longer. It would be highly recommended that you upgrade to something more current such as Fedora 11 or CentOS 5.3
Fedora is the Red Hat test bed so to speak, and CentOS is Red Hat Enterprise Linux but without the Red Hat logos and paid support.
Best of luck with it whichever route you should take.oz

this usually means that you have used up all your channel subscriptions. Either you need to login to your server account and free up some systems subscribed to RHEL or you need more entitlements by contacting a red hat sales associate.
If you decide free up some systems:
1.- log to your red hat account
2.- Select system tab
3.- Select the name of the old system in the system list
4.- now delete it by clicking on the delete system link
5.- confirm the removal
login in to your system and remove this file systemid
whith: rm /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid
now register box whit the update agent using
rhh_register in the command line
