Could be. I'd recommend you use VMware and install v7 on its own clean server.

There is a listed workaround here, but I think you may endanger your 9i setup if you do.

I would use a clean box myself.

Also, are you sure you need Oracle 7.3? If you have an export file, just import it into the 9.x database. I assumed you had a physical backup and not an export. If not, just import.

- if you have trouble installing Oracle 7, the following link is the workaround of the "Unable to delete the NTservice for SQL *Net V2 Listener" by Marius Grigoriu:

- you can actually use the dump/export file from 7.3.4 and import into database 10.X and 11.X use each respective version import file to do the import. no need to install Oracle 7. however you need to have latest patch installed to the database which require you have account with oracle support.
- you can read  the import and patches information in metalink ID 132904.1
