more info :
in wss 2.0 / 2003, you have .stp, .fwp and .wpp

"The Windows SharePoint Services solution framework is built upon the functionality provided in Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 by site and list definitions, .stp files, and .fwp files. It supersedes the functionality provided in Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 by Web Part packages (.wpp files). For backward compatibility, Web Part packages are supported in the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 solution framework. However, it is recommended that you deploy Web Parts through solution files (.wsp files) because the solution framework is more robust and can be used to deploy more types of entities than Web Part packages."
