Hmmm.. never had to do this but it should be possible to open the .vbproj (or .csproj or whatever) and change the line that reads:

  SchemaVersion = "1.1"


  SchemaVersion = "1.0"

I think.... ;)

Lemme know if it works or not as I may need to do this myself some day ;)  It won't work if your code uses any of the 1.1 framework features though...
Just don't do it.  It's not backward compatible.
You can have both VS.NET 2002 and VS.NET 2003 on the same machine.
I recommend creating a new VS.NET 2002 project, creating new classes and forms, and copying the code and controls into the new items.
