    Running two versions of office can get messy but you can do it. The biggest problems you will have is with Outlook (if you use it that is!)

    You can do it alot better with Windows 7 and it's virtual PC (provided your CPU supports hardware virtualsation).

    I have them both running without a problem.
    In some circumstances you will need 2003 still installed if you are developing apps and add ins for it ect.. that's why I do it. I wouldn't normally recommend it but it doesn't cause any problems.

    Regards,
