Message Exactly what I was trying to get from them during my
discussion.

It got down to I can install the server on multiple
machines, one machine can connect to RHN (because I
only had 1 license), and I can copy the rpms and
install/update them manually on the remaining
machines. Again, I'll forward the email tomorrow and
let you all decide for yourself. I would recommend
contacting RH and verifying if you are still uneasy.
