I've been using crossover 7 with Office 2003 and it makes life a little less stressful. I'm not sure if you're a student, but they do have educational discounts.

other than that, I've heard good things about the winetricks tool, but haven't used it personally.

Crossover tends to work better than wine. If you're going to use wine, you need to familiarize yourself with the CodeWeavers application compatibility database. The rating for Office 2003 is "garbage", meaning it won't work. See below:
