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

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.
