Server 2003 doesn't have the required GPO templates to achieve this. It is still possible on a 2003 domain, however, but you need to jump through a couple of hoops.

In order to change these settings you will need to install RSAT tools on a Windows Vista or above computer. Once these are installed you need to open Group Policy Management on that computer, edit the relevant GPO and browse to:

Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options

The settings you're after will begin "User Account Control:"

Remember that once you've set these settings you will only be able to change them from a computer (or server) running the RSAT tools.

RSAT Tools can be downloaded from the following locations:

Win Vista: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21090
Win 7: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7887
Win 8: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=28972

Further details of the UAC settings you may want to use can be found here:
