We have exchange server 2003 installed and it is on our domain controller. Now we have another server running windows server 2008.

If we were to install MS exchange server 2007 on the windows 2008 server will would it affect us and will it cause any issues with exchange server 2003 as they are in the same domain.

Specifications;
Windows server 2003
XEON 3.0GHZ/2MB x 2
3GB SINGLE RANK DDR2 MEMORY (6X512MB)
146GB SCSI ULTRA320 (10, 000RPM) x 4 (RAID 10)

Windows server 2008
XEON 2.0GHZ x 4
6GB RAM
1.5TB SCSI x 6 (RAID 5)

No it shouldn't cause any issues with Exchange 2003.  I would recommend reading the following guide on migrating to 2007 before doing anything though:
