Inset the CD that you have Server 2003 on. When it comes to the install options just choose D as the root directory.

Did you try to type in D:\ Windows? Will it accept that name for an install directory?

Okay so it wont accept D:\ Windows how about something like D:\WinNT? That way it wont be confused with the XP C:\Windows.
