I am pretty certain that you can't download the trial version of VS 2003 any longer.

Even if you could: the "trial" versions in earlier days did not correspond to the Express versions of today. If I remember correctly, you could only use them to run your programmes from within the VS GUI. Linking into a standalone executable was not possible.

Here is a link for VS 2005 Express editions:

ps:
I should not be surprised at all if, after downloading, these should turn out to be the 2008 versions as well. Marketing only most recent programme versions has always been MS policy - alas.
