Displaying Content from another server in SharePoint web page viewer part

We are in a position at this point that we are moving our intranet site to Sharepoint Services 2003. We can't buy a new version of sql server to use reporting services from within Sharepoint at this time. So I'm exploring ways to get around that which don't cost the company any money at this point. I have my reporting aspx pages built on our one 2008 server that has .net 4 installed. What I would like to be able to do on one page of the WSS 2003 site is to have a list of links (aspx reports) in the left hand column which, when clicked, open the web pages in a web page viewer part on the right hand side. I can get the links to work, but they open in the whole page and take the user outside the WSS site. I'm trying to keep them inside WSS.

Is this possible to do?

You need to find the name/id of your web page viewer and then specify this as the target in your link e.g

<a href="myPage.aspx" target="id_of_iframe">click me</a>

This is the layout I'm trying to accomplish. This is the first time I've tried to do any customizing in sharepoint. I did manage to create a new page with a full vertical layout that will display the content of the report correctly, but it takes up the entire sharepoint window and i lose my tab bar across the top and the navigation bar on the left.

Okay it's not probably the "prettiest" way to accomplish this but it works. I create a separate "Links" list for each report and show it on the quick launch bar. Then in the main area I have one single web part that is a link to that aspx page on the other server. Seems to run pretty fast and I don't immediately see any drawbacks to doing it that way. Are there any drawbacks that you can think of? Or any other way to accomplish the same thing?

Nope. That's what I assumed you were doing first off but just couldn't get the report to show in the correct window/frame

Take into account that the product you are using is no longer supported by Microsoft.

I know it isn't supported anymore and I would REALLY like to install Sharepoint 2010 Foundation on the server where I have the aspx reports stored, but I think I'll start a new thread for that conversation.
