Is it safe to register and update it?

Which operating system are you running? It sounds like it's either a copy of a Redhat Enterprise product or whitebox linux. If that's the case, Redhat is trying to get you to register your copy with them to log in to their repositories for updates. If you have a legit copy, registering shouldn't be a problem.

If that doesn't work, I would suggest looking into centos ( It is basically Redhat Enterprise Server 4 without the redhat (And therefore free). We run it on all of our production boxes here.
