There is no such thing as a frontend/backend in Exchange 2010.
When you deploy Exchange 2010 in to an Exchange 2003 platform, the Exchange 2010 server does a lot of that functionality.

Read this article from Microsoft, which explains the process clearly.

Specifically you are looking at the client access coexistance section.

For Exchange 2003 you can do a Frontend by checking the box on general tab but for Exchange 2010 you can use EDGE (resides in DMZ) and HUB as an servers thats in Domain

Not sure why you know want to install Exchange 2003 along with 2010 in this Scenario ?
