Mapping Error.

When I attempt to Map a drive to my 2003 Server non-domain (workgroup), if automatically defaults to the Guest account for login and will not allow me to change it to my account or the admin account. The Guest is listed but is also grayed out.  The guest account on my 2003 Server is disabled.

You should turn off simple network sharing in the client Local security policy.
Also, in the Security Policy, under Security Options, check that the Network Access:Sharing and Security Model is set to classic....
hmmm take a step back coz i am about to rant....

why do you have a 2003 server in a workgroup! you have paid for the best server release to date, and you arent running AD! why why why!

Its like buying a plane and driving it around on its wheels

you are missing: Centralised management, security, standardisation, control everything!
