Q: Why does yum tell me my RHN (Red Hat Network) support will be disabled?


This is a bug in how yum deals with being run as a non-root user.

The error messages you get saying that you are not registered for RHN and that RHN support will be disabled are incorrect.

The work-around is to always run yum as root.
