Which include line do you mean? Are you speaking of "include

Setting you system back to a virgin state without any bind file just
check the content of your installed named packages with "rpm -qp
$PACKAGE", uninstall the package and delete each file that was not
created by the package itself but by you for the package. Deleting an
RPM will not delete custom files. Afterwards reinstall the needed

If you broke up2date by trying to register with RHN just edit
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources and comment "up2date default" at the top of
the file. this was mentioned before here on the list. Check the list
archive for information please.
