Red Hat Advanced Server (precursor to RHEL) released March 26, 2002:

Red Hat 7.3 released May 6, 2002:
http://www.redhat.com/about/presscenter/2002/press_seventhree.html

Red Hat's big push to get the ISVs to support the
high-end Red Hat distribution only was still going on
when 7.3 came out, so much proprietary software is
still supported on 7.3 and even 8.  By the time 9.0
and Fedora came out, the ISVs had gotten the message
that the low-end Red Hat was going to move however
fast it takes to be painful to support proprietary
software on.
