I am migrating from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010.  I moved all mailboxes but one which give me a "insufficient user access rights" error.  I am logged in as administrator, but it seems like it doesn't have access to the mailbox I am trying to move.  Any ideas?

On the 2003 server, you might have permission inheritance blocked, and the 2003 server may not have gotten the information it needs to grant the access to move the mailbox.

Right-click the Server object in Exchange System Manager on the 2003 server, go to Properties, Security, Advanced, and see if the inheritance checkbox is enabled.

Alternatively, you might try creating an administrative account that is not the built-in administrator, as that account is blocked from performing certain mailbox-related tasks.

If I go to go to Properties, Security, Advanced, the inheritance checkbox is enabled.  Should I uncheck this?  If so will it mess anything up?

This checkbox should be checked under normal circumstances so that changes made to the Exchange org will trickle down to this server. However, for purposes of migration, you could try unchecking the box, (select to copy the permissions), then go through and remove the explicit deny entries for administrator, domain admins, exchange domain servers, etc. Then try your mailbox move again. Be sure to check the box again if you are going to keep this server in use afterward.
