I wish to move the data from a Sharepoint site on SBS2003 to a local network file server.
Is this possible? Possible down sides?

The question is : what do you want to achieve.
If it are just documents, then you can. Either by hand or by writing a small application that goes through all your document libraries and moves/copies them to the fileshare.
If it is also web content etcetera it's gonna be a lot harder. So back to question 1 : what do you want to achieve :)

Open the site in windows explorer and copy the files to a network share.

I can see in the not to distant future that the server drive containing the database  is going to be to small
I wish to have only the document libraries moved. It is mainly used for document colaboration and version control

Will the site then reference the files that are moved to the file server?

Then you can copy them by hand,by making use of the explorer view as Robbie suggested.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Moving the files by hand stops them being referenced in the website. I guess that its more complicated to host the libraries on another server? This would be ideal for me.

Do you have any ideas in this regard?

Ok, so if I understand you correctly you still want the documents to be available on the website? If you want that you should think about hosting a new content database on a new drive and move the site using stsadm to the new drive.

Yes MsShadow and JBlond

Looks like I need to do a little more work than I had hoped. However I  will try to set up another content database on another drive and move the site.
This might take a couple of days with current situation, office moves etc

I'll check back when I have some result
Thankyou for your  time and advice
