I'm not sure why you would do that unless they stopped making a package. If you want to install a 9.3 package on 10.0, you can get the myfile.src.rpm package and recompile it for 10.0.

rpmbuild --rebuild *.src.rpm
rpm -ivh /usr/src/where/it/was/just/written.rpm

And that's it. The source files come with the DVD and CD packages. Good luck.
