Converting from RHEL 6 to Centos 6.2

I recently installed RHEL 6 (workstation) but had not yet purchased an RedHat Network subscription when i learned that i can change it to Centos very easily and then updates will work off of Centos repository. So i upgraded RHEL 6 to Centos 6.2 with the following commands executed in order:

yum clean all
mkdir ~/centos
cd ~/centos
rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6
rpm -e --nodeps redhat-release-server
rpm -e yum-rhn-plugin rhn-check rhnsd rhn-gnome-setup rhn-setup
rpm -Uhv --force *.rpm
yum upgrade
 This above is based on blog post.
