Hi and welcome to LQ.

Red Hat 7.3 is an old distro thats no longer supported or receiving any updates. I suggest you look at something more recent e.g. the latest versions of RHEL/CentOS and Fedora.

missing drivers

I have seen the same while I tried to install Win XP SP2 on the laptop with SATA disc.
You have to get latest RedHat version (if you are looking for free version, then it is called FEDORA) or solve the issue with drivers (I solved the issue with drivers on WinXP using nLite, but I don't know whether there is similar tool for Linux)

You may want to look into updating the machine BIOS, and firmware for the hard disks if there is any available.
