I created an offline root CA and now plan on creating a Sub CA to issue certificates to users and computers. I am in a 2003 and 2008 Active Directory domain. I would like to install IIS on the Sub CA so users can request certificates through web enrollment.

That question I have is, can I create an Enterprise Sub CA on a member server or does it have to be created on a DC?

Yes you can install the subCA on a member server. In fact, that is preferable. It is not best practice to install the CA role on a DC.
