We want to encrypt a column that houses credit card numbers. The database must stay in 2000 mode until we fix all the other issues with our software. Is it possible to use the 2005 encryption  on a DB that is running in 2000 mode?

Yes, you can.
I just checked on my SQL server 2005 installation as I was not sure.
