You basically have 2 options when you install 07:
Install over 2003 (thus deleting it): i only recommend this route if you have your office 03 cds handy
Install along side 2003.
When you install alongside 03, when you open documents, they still default to opening with 2003. You could change that, or just open within the program.
The only real differences are aethestics and security, I'm not sure what they've changed in how it actually handles the documents. So, I don't know if things created with 2007 are backwards compatible, meaning, when you uninstall 07, you can open with 03. I don't see why you couldn't--office 2000 can open office 2003 files.
I used it, didn't really see a need for it, and uninstalled it. There's really no point, and since they once again delayed the launch of it in 2007, I feel that this beta is so far from the final product, it might destabilize your system more than you would like.
