Do you do the forest prep on the member server or on the dc?
It needs to be run on the DC.

Are you using an account thats member of Schema, Enterprise and Domain Admins ?
I would also like you to check if you can check which server holds the FSMO roles and is the DC a GC as well ?

Lordpan sorry to say but it isnt necessary to run on a DC or GC server :(

Whatever id you are using, add it to Enterprise, Schema and Domain Admin Group and then run the setup again. Any reason for 2003, this is pretty old and now almost out of MS support.

GC means Global Catalog server and that is with a checkbox in ADSited and Services console and then the machine needs to be restarted

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?
