Exactly what are you trying to update via yum?  You can't update the
base packages of RHELv4 via yum since RH does not support yum at that
release level.  You need to use their "up2date".  Additionally, RH
requires a subscription to update.  In RHELv5 yum is used instead of
"up2date".  But, again, you need a subscription to update.

If you need the stability of RHEL, but don't/can't want to pay for a
subscription there is always the well known clone CentOS.

Those who can, do; those who can't, write. Those who can't write work
for the Bell Labs Record.
