Have you checked the Red Hat site? – ChrisF Apr 6 '11 at 13:21
Are you running RHEL 3?! With your RHEL subscription you should have also gained some support options direct from Redhat. Check in to and get their advice. – PriceChild Apr 6 '11 at 13:29

As explained in redhat's online documentation (e.g. RHEL 5, RHEL 6) upgrades between major versions of RHEL are not supported; it is best to install RHEL 6 fresh.
