Theoretically, you could just 'rpm -Fvh' all the rpm's to bring them up the latest version. In practice it is never quite that easy. One solution that a colleague of mine used was to install 'apt4rpm' (search google), which is a port of the Debian apt tools. Then all you have to do is configure your sources.list to point at 7.3 rpm's and do an "apt-get dist-upgrade" ... all the dependencies are handled for you automatically.
