If you compiled it through 2005 it was compiled using .net 2.0. And in 2003 which uses .net 1.1 if you try to add a .net 2.0 dll it wouldnt be able to understand it. It wouldnt work that way...

One other way to get it done is expose the .net 2.0 dll as a web service / remoting and then use the dll. Otherwise try to code the solution using 2.0 completely.
