You will want to boot from the Windows 2003 disk. From there you can format the partition and install the OS.

Hello,

Yep. When you boot the 2003 disk, you will get a listing of the partitions somewhere in the install process. Make sure you select the right partition. For cleanliness, you might want to delete the small partition first, and then install 2003 again in a new cleanly formatted partition.
