If you meant SQL Server 2003 as 2008, then its possible and just follow the regular steps for Restore.
If you meant SQL Server 2003 as 2000, then its not possible to restore your *.bak file from SQL Server 2005.

No, you can't restore backup taken from 2005 and restore it in SQL Server 2000.
If you want to copy that database to SQL Server 2000, then you have to use Database Publishing Wizard from here

to copy the data from SQL Server 2005 and run it in SQL Server 2000 on Windows Server 2003 machine.
