The original rhn-applet included in Fedora Core 1 does not detect available updates properly.

2. Install it with following command.

# rpm -Uvh rhn-applet-2.1.4-3.i386.rpm

3. Log out and log back in.
4. Right click on rhn-applet and choose 'Check for updates'

5. If it becomes red, right click on rhn-applet and choose 'Launch up2date..."

See TUTORIAL: up2date for more information.
