I was also rather confused by this. And I find it strange how little the

official docs say about this.

In some knowledge base article (I think it was), I found that you need
run rhn-profile-sync on the dom0 (the server hosting the guests) before 
RHN realizes that you have virtual guests on the system; so I run this 
regularly while installing a new domU, not exactly knowing how it works.

Also, I found that I needed to change the RHN settings for the dom0, 
explicitly adding a virtualization sub-channel (I've forgotten the name)

to it before I could install all the relevant software on the dom0.
