    Red Hat 703 is pretty old and no longer supported. You might want to looking into upgrading to either Fedora 9 or 10. Or perhaps CentOS.
    But aside from that, the only help I can give would be this link: http://weblog.cs.uiowa.edu/22C178s98/etc/login.defs

    Sorry... I never ran 7.3, so other than that the only thing I could offer is <Linux> - Google Search
