the problem is u have some network locations saved (ex. mapped drive)
if u leave word enough time (3-5 min) it will unfreeze.
try to delete/unmap  non local drives/favorites.

Try in a different user profile to see if the errror is profile dependent.

Also consider uninstalling, restarting and reinstalling Office 2003 (15 minutes). This will not help if there is a profile error.

Are you try to "save as" to non-existent drives?  Do a net use command to see if there are drives needing reconnection.
