imho: For a single machine there isn't much difference and apt-get might be
the way to go. However, I find RHN to be quite helpful in managing my
servers for me. I can track via the web interface which machines are out of
date, what packages are involved, schedule updates and keep a complete
history of actions. Not to mention the priority ISO downloads. Not
something that you use all the time but very handy none the less.
