Not sure exactly what your question is, but if you can't get VS .NET 2003, check out MS Visual C++ Toolkit:

   http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/

It's a free version of the .NET C++ compiler.  It is the full-featured C++ compiler from VS .NET 2003 Professional.  As I understand it it's completely command line, so you don't get the IDE, but you can build most apps - just need to do manual screen layout.  That, along with the docs at MSDN site, should get you going at least.

ms visual studio enterprise 6.0 will not get you VC++ .NET.  The newer compiler is much better.

Well - you can download VS 2005 Beta from MS - http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/visualc/
or the command-line compilers that come with VS 2003 - http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/
They are free :)
And as far as I know you can't use VS6 to compile managed C++ code.
