Have you tried reburning it? Perhaps trying another type of disk or software? Have you tried another drive?

Downloaded Windows 2003 Server from Microsoft, eh?

It sounds like Microsoft have made this ISO wrong; and if writing it again doesn't make it work you should download a different copy of Windows 2003 from Microsoft.
