There are ways but it will be very very difficult since Office will write over the old version.

The easiest way to do it is use Windows XP mode or a Virtual Window and install it there. You have to keep the installations separate from one another.

Are you just trying to keep 2003 and learn 2007?

Yes, you can provided you follow certain rules. See here.

Information about using 2007 Office suites and programs on a computer that is running another version of Office

However, its not recommended because of problems like very slow switching betwen the 2 versions. But why exactly do you want 2 versions installed?

Wow, i did not know that...
I never knew anyone who would want an earlier version and the later version of the same thing on the same computer.

not ready for 2007

In many cases, I want to run my older version of office a wait a while for the upgrade to the next version. My times the newer version comes installed as trial version and the system always defaults to trying to run it.
