I haven't worked with 2003, but if you can't add a distro group using AD, then setup a regular user with the distro name and use forwarding to the users who need to receive mail.  so the email will come into the distro mailbox and then forward to all the users.

oh, so right now you have the legacy mailbox and you also have a distro list?  and you want all the users in that distro list to have full access to that legacy mailbox?
