Re-registering a system to the Red Hat network

I've made a boo-boo with the partitioning on a RedHat ES 3 box I just registered to the Red-Hat network, so I guess I'll have to reinstall the system.
I'm just worried that if I do this then I'll have difficulties re-registering the system to the redhat network.

I have all the registration paperwork here, and have documented the key, username, and password for access. Will I have any problems re-registering the machine?

No, you won't be any problem to re-register your RHEL system on RHN.
It's not like M$ activation......
But you'd better login to RHN to remove the duplicate system title.

By the way, login to RHN and remove the system before you re-install the system.
