Well the Red Hat 7.3 rpms appear to by on the primary PostgreSQL ftp server since Jan. 9, but that server is almost impossible to conect to, it's always "too busy", and none of the US or Canadian mirrors have those files! Anybody know why? Are these available for download anywhere else?

Downloading the PostgreSQL 7.4.2 rpms for Red Hat 7.3 now seems to work fine. Whatever the problem was with the Postgres FTP server before, it's gone now. Btw, the following wget command is handy for just yanking down all 10 or 12 rpms at once, and is idempotent (you can re-run it many times if necessary):
wget -r -c -l2 --no-parent -A.rpm ftp://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/binary/v7.4.2/redhat/redhat-7.3
