Depending on what version of UCX they included with 7.3 (I still have
the old kit), you can use "vmsinstal" (old packages using the SETLD
distribution format) or "installprod" (new packages) scripts to
start the installation.

Assuming you have a working CDROM drive on the box, you can MOUNT
the CDROM drive, set the default directory to the KITS folder on
the CDROM, and do the "vmsinstal ucx" or "installprod ucx", and
any other package included. There used to be a small HOWTO text
file included on that CDROM.
