Do you have all the updates installed for:
Office 2003
Office 2010
Your Version of Windows.

What exactly happens when you try to open the link table manager in Access 2003?

If you uninstall *just* access 2010, does it work again in Access 2003?

If so, then re-install access 2010 again.

Not sure. (as most people have ungraded incrementally from 2003-->2007-->2010

If the DB is still in the Access 2003 format then open the DB in Access 2003 and run the compact/repair Utility on the Front end and the back end db.
Then retest.

If that does not work, then create a blank new Front end and back end database and import all the objects from the original db's.
The retest.

If nether of these work, then I suggest you contact Microsoft directly.

I don't know it it is an option or not , but you might try upgrading to Access 2007 first.

I have not heard any issues with the L.T.M.  going from 2003 to 2007.

Sorry I could not be of more help...
