So you can install CentOS 5 (or anything else if you prefer it) and use it as host
for VMWare/Virtualbox/Qemu.
Inside one of the VM you can install Redhat 7.2 without too much difficult.
Thank you very much for your help . Please be informed that the CentOS 5 is installed on my pc. Can you please do me favor and let me know how can I make use of VM to install RedHat 7.2 as I am not familiar with this procedure ?
Let me thank you in advance

I am not used VirtualBox myself.

If you want to use VMWare, you have to install it, and then you got UI to create/edit/run/suspend virtual machines.

On my Fedora 8 there is also Applications/SystemTools/VirtualMachineManager
that allows create qemu virtual machine.

Or you can read qemu's man and do it yourself

Hard to say. You don't say anything about what hardware you're using, but I'd think it has something to do with that version of Linux. RH 7.2 is ancient. I'd get a more recent release, like Fedora Core 11, or CentOS 5.3, and try them. They're both RedHat based, but support newer hardware. The 7.2 may not like what you're trying to install it on.

Thank you very much for your reply . But the application that I want to install on my pc needs RedHat 7.2 to be pre-installed . I heard that the VMWare can be used on CentOS 5 host to install the RedHat 7.2 , but I am not so familiar with this procedure . Can you please do me favor and provide me with more details in this regard ?
Let me thank you in advance

What is the application you wish to install, that claims to require RH7.2? Is there definitely no other version of it that can be installed in a more modern distro?

Thank you for your reply . I tried my intended application on CentOS 5 and RedHat 9 but I got incompatibility issues so I was told to make use of RedHat 7.2 for this purpose . Can you please do me favor and let me know is there any way to get rid of this installer freeze ?
Looking your reply

Well, hard to say, As TBone asked you earlier, it may well have to do with the hardware you're using, being too new for the RH7.2 kernel to boot on, without some weird workarounds, which I can't speculate about.

Please tell us about the machine you're trying to install onto, and tell us what the application is, that you wish to install on RH7.2

Thanks,
Sasha

With special thanks for your reply , please be informed that my platform is Intel Celeron 2.5GHz on TravelMate 240 Laptop from ACER Co. and the application is an Operations & Maintenance Center application software from an properietary Company that calls for Linux 7.2 pre-installed . Please do me favor and let me know how to work around ?
Let me thank you in advance

your best bet for installing the VERY OLD RH 7.2 is to find a 10 to 12 year old laptop
and install it on that antique .A computer/laptop that had windows 98 on it .

If he is installing RH7.2 in VMware server the hardware should not matter(it is virtual).

What specific application are you having issues with that you need RH7.2 and what specific errors are given when you try to use it on on Centos 5.3?

Have you installed Vmware server?

Thank you so much . I found the Virtualbox as an excellent utility to install other guest OS . But I encountered a new problem that needs to "Virtualize" UltraSPARC Platform on my Intel-base client . Can you please do me favor and let me know if there is a solution in this regard?
Thank you in advance

What do you need to run on that (virtualized) UltraSPARC platform ?

As far as I know, qemu doesn't emulate UltraSPARC (64 bit) but only 32 bit SPARC.
