    that all depends on your video card and the display settings you have set.  Id check your display settings first on the 2003 server to make sure they match the settings on the XP box.  you do this by rightlcicking on your desktop and choosing properties, then select the settings tab. are they both the same? If not adjust the 2003 box to match the xp box.
