I know that in Windows 2000 AD, password policies would only work if applied at the domain level.  What is the deal with Windows 2003 AD?  Can you apply password policies to an OU, and will it only affect the OU that it is linked to?

No - 2003 is the same way as 2000.  

However, Windows Longhorn Server will support multiple Password Policies.
