IMHO this was a different issue - you can't register into spacewalk
unless you have client packages which are in spacewalk channel which are
inaccessible without registration... an instance of classical chicken-egg
problem :).

Bootstrap.sh is generated dynamicaly - go to: Admin -> Spacewalk Configuration
-> Bootstrap Script.
