Hello
I've just installed RedHat Linux version 7.3. I couldn't find linuxconf neither on my system or on the installation CD's. Did they replace it by some other service?

Linuxconf is considered generally too buggy to use, although I think it is on the CDs somewhere.

Webmin is a preferred alternative, I suggest you give that a try.

If you not find linuxconf on your system , You shoul consider to download the linuxconf RPM.

Try to look over the internet for linuxconf
 
I think for RH7.3 linuxconf-1.25r7-3.rpm


Have a nice day

Are you sure Linuxconf is supposed to be included in the RedHat 7.3?

No, I'm not sure. A glance on the Red Hat ftp servers suggests it was removed between 7.2 and 7.3 but still, I've seen too many systems trashed by linuxconf to recomend it (probably why they got rid of it), I really suggest switching to webmin instead.

What I'm trying to find out is which program they put in the 7.3 version instead of Linuxconf (webmin is not included in the professional package either)?

Linuxconf was removed as of v7.3 of Red Hat Linux, according to the official release notes (see link).  
  http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.3-Manual/release-notes/x86/

They seem to have replaced it with a host of config options in "Nautilus".  If you are running GNOME with Nautilus, there is a "Start Here" icon in the menu that leads to it.  
The same links seem to appear in the KDE Control Panel, too.  
They simply call out other programs to config different things (i.e. "neat" is the network config utility).
