I tried installing qgis 1.7.2 and 1.7.3 via osgeo4w. QGIS was installed but I cannot enable the Plugin Installer "incompatible version"

Strange, seems you have the installer with corrupted metadata. 0.9 was quite old version, however should be compatible with all 1.x qgis releases.
Do you have a "plugin_installer" directory in your home directory\\.qgis\\python\\plugins ? If so, just remove it and it should help. Qgis 1.7 comes with plugin installer 1.2.1 placed inside of te Osgeo4W directory.
Anyway, I don't know why qgis finds the 0.9 incompatible with 1.7
