You could try getting yum from centos-2 and running it to see what 
happens.  Centos-2 is like RH72 so much of it is same versions and yum 
will not want to upgrade, this should not be a major problem because if 
the packages are the same version they should have the same contents. 
You might have problems with RH73 because it is newer than CentOS-2 so 
in effect to perform an upgrade you would have to install older 
packages.  I don't know if yum can do that.

I would recommend the best way is backup your config files and reinstall 
you chosen OS.

No matter what you do, make sure you backup first so if things go bad 
you can recover.
