OK, (I am a newbie with CURRENT) thanks. :-)

Just to clear things up...
I only have one RHAS server right now, and I do use RHN with it.
It cost me $2400 for a 3 year RHN AS subscription.
I will not install Advanced Server on any servers that I haven't
purchased a
support contract for. I might buy more RHAS licenses if I have to have
Oracle or some such thing with a valid support contract. But I'm not
going to pay for AS if I don't need AS, but I would like to benefit from
the GPL'd packages that are available for free.

So, I have downloaded all the SRPM's for Advanced Server and also the
SRPM's for the AS updates from the public FTP sites, (*not* from RHN)
I am buillding those SRPM's into binary RPM's on my own box.
A few of them aren't BSD/GPL/MIT/Apache licensed, such as the IBM-JDK
stuff, so I will have to check on those before I include them.

I plan to make my own install bootnet floppy that will access the RPM's
that I build
    (not redhat advanced server, just the same packages and version
numbers)
I want to use Current so that when I have installed many (10-30) servers
like this
I can use up2date on them to keep them "current" with patches and
bug fixes.

Thanks,
-Ben.

        the valid_channels variable is simply a list of channel labels
that you've created and determined to be valid. The actual strings
involved are totally at your discretion.

        All you have to do is ensure that your channel definitions are
accurate (i.e. arch and os_release).

        This file will be overwritten when you register with the Current
server, as you will have to do in order to use it. If you only have the
one platform, you're probably better off using RHN. Even if you have
multiple AS platforms, you're still probably better off using RHN, since
you've already paid for support through RHN. (At least, it's my
understanding that you can't get AS without getting support from Red
Hat...)
