      @Abhay,
      The error is clear that your system must registered to Red Hat network before installing updates from Red Hat repository. I think the following article will help you out in registering your Server.

      @Keemoads,
      It seems your server has less RAM to process cPanel installation, try to add more RAM at least 1GB and try the installation again..

      @Karim,
      After Cpanel installation, just point your browser to your system ip and port 2087

      http://your-server-ip:2087
