Unless you have some sort of proxy server then you cant. Windws 2003 server has nothing whatsoever with users browsing the web.

From what I understand you need wither a proxy or a firewall appliance to do this.

This will depend on your firewall. Make model capability and IF you have it all enabled.

Unless you've enabled logging or auditing on a proxy server or something you can't get this retroactively.  Do you have access to the client?  Just check the web history.

Does your firewall log back as far as you want to go?
What is the make and model of firewall?  Does the firewall log the internal address that you can trace back to him.  Firewalls will generally log only IP addresses and ports.  It may allow name resolution to show you domain names for the web sites.  If this users IP address changes you will have a harder time lining up the IP addresses with that user.  If your firewall only logs an external NAT it is likely shared and will provide nothing of value.  Is your firewall also a proxy server?  If so then you need to check those logs for similar info; a proxy may log username.
