Actually, following up on my own post, I need to clarify something.  The
license for RHEL 2.1 states that if you have support (which includes RHN)
for one install, then you will have it for all installations.  So, in that
case, if you are in compliance, then all of your installations would have
RHN support and there would be no need to download the errata from RHN then
push it out to other machines.  Sorry for the confusion.
