Hi Paulo - 

If Red Hat has 2 versions of 7.3 out there, then the answer is to use
the first version, the one that works with the XFS installer.  :)

You could also try changing the timestamp in the XFS installer to match the
new version, but I don't know what has changed, so you may well run into
trouble on that path. (If RPM versions have changed, then the hdlist file
on the XFS installer disc won't match, and it won't find the RPMs that it
needs)
