Nope.... You will need to migrate to at least upgrade to SQL Server 2000 to run on Win2K3.

Hi, is it possible if I install MS SQL Server 6 or 7 in my Windows XP Professional?

Nope... You can only install MSSQL7 client tools on the XP workstations.  Sorry.

Are you just looking to install a database?  Would MSDE or SQL Server Express work?

Because I need to migrate my MS SQL Server 7 from my Windows Server 2000 to a new machine.

I would look at migrating from MSSQL 7 to MSSQL2000 and then upgrade from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003.  That is pretty much your only migration path, or the path of least resistance.
