I fought with it for several days, never figured it out either.

I would have thought the right os_release string is one of "2.9.5AS",
"2.9.5ES", "2.9.5WS", but of course that doesn't work, based on what is
in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<value><str​ing>Initial Registration Parameters:
OS: Red Hat Linux
Release: 2.9.5AS
CPU Arch: i686-redhat-linux​</string></val​ue>
<value><string>Red Hat Linux</string>​</value>
<value><string>some system name</string>​</value>

Any thoughts would be welcome and tested promptly on Monday.
