Have you tried running your application on CentOS 3.6 or 4.2?  If it's a 
binary-only application, it should still continue to work if you install 
the compatibility libraries.  That's likely a much safer choice if you 
want timely updates for the next 2 years and you get the benefit of more 
current tools/kernels/etc.  I wasn't even aware that 7.3 was still 
officially supported....
