For the Voodoo3 you'll want to use the DRI driver, not the stand-alone
Mesa/Glide driver. Stand-alone Mesa knows nothing about the DRI so
by installing it, you're effectively disabling the DRI driver.
Remove Mesa 4.0.3 and libGL.* then re-install your XFree86 RPMS.
I think there's an RPM option to force re-installation. That should
restore the original libGL library.
Voodoo3 support with RedHat 7.3 should just work out of the box
(though I haven't tested it).
