No workarounds, as they would be illegal.
If you want to have another instance of W2k3 running, you'll need a license for it.
If you only want it for testing, download a 180-day-eval copy from Microsoft.
Another option for testing would be to buy a TechNet subscription (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/default.aspx)
But there is definitely no "free appliance for 2003 that not ask for license activation".
