Advice on upgrading RH7.3 to FC3 (or 4)?

That is a pretty wide chasm to cross with a straight upgrade.  If a 
total loss of the system's functionality would be a bad thing, then my 
suggestion would be to go RH 7.3 --> RH 9 --> FC1 --> FC2 --> FC3.

Otherwise, backup your critical info and build FC3 from scratch and then 
restore your configs and files.  This will require some tweaking, but at 
least you will then have good confidence as to the base installation.

Good luck!
