Actually, up2date and RHN was introduced with Red Hat Linux 7.0. It was
later back-ported to RHL 6.2. It was made available as an enhancement
errata for RHL 6.2. Also note that RHL 6.2 initially shipped with RPM
3.0.4. RPM 4.0.2 was provided as an errata. Up2date required this RPM
upgrade to work. (If you do this, make sure to run rpm --rebuilddb to
convert the RPM 3 database to the RPM 4 format.)

So, if you want up2date on something prior to 6.2, you'd have to
back-port the RPM 4.0.2 package from 6.2 and also back-port the up2date
package. I can't see the benefit. It would make a lot more sense to
upgrade the system to 6.2, or more reasonably, 7.3 or something newer.

Hope this helps,

Jeremy
