create a new 2003 .pst, File->new->outlook data file
you can either just copy the contents of the 2000 file into it, or import it
file -> import/export
choose to import from a file, select the 2000 .pst
then import it to the new one you've created,

But would this new file be the "main" one - i.e. will all new e-mails go to the inbox on that file?
ideally yes,
you could leave it in there for archive use if you wanted, but i would recommend swapping
