You have very little chance of getting Windows 2003 running on that machine I'm afraid as the processor architecture is not x86. There is no Windows for SPARC :)

Stick to a Compaq/Dell or custom build x86 box with 2003/IIS I'm afraid :)

As a side note, there's a few things out there for Apache that will let you do ASP, not sure about though. If you're not comfortable with unix in general, then my original comment stands. Thanks :)
