Don't know if it's the same for RH 7.3 but in 8.0 you can do
# switchdesk-kde

Of course since I happen to use KDE (and love it!) I would have to do
# switchdesk-gnome
but that's very unlikely

there mus be a file named .xinitrc you have to edit it and if you have graphical login this has a diffrent name you can check out you root directory or what ever user is having this problem and check inside of the file you must find twm and change it to gnome or you can use swithch desk as well if redhat 7.3 has.
