If I remember correctly, you right-click on the icon. Then click on Configure RHN. In
there there should be an option to remove the icon from the taskbar.

(assuming you have a Default gnome desktop) On your upper task bar click the Desktop menu, then hover into your System Settings menu, then click Add/Remove Applications.
A window should pop up requesting that you type your root (administrator) password.
In the Package Management program next to X Window System under the Desktops catogory click Details.
A list of applications installed should pop up. Search for "rhn-applet" should be around the middle of the list. If and only if it is checked UNCHECK it. Press close and then in the original Package Management window click update.

Log out, and back in. Reboot as many times as you want. It wont ever bother you again :p
