First, if you run Remote Desktop Connection and go to the Local Resources tab, is the Printers box checked?

If that isn't the problem try upgrading the client to version 5.2.  You can find the installer under %systemroot%\system32\clients\tsclient on your 2003 server (assuming SP1 is installed) or it can be obtained here:
