Are you looking for a general overview of the differences between 2003 and 2005, differences between the versions of ASP.NET, or differences in the programmability model (what this forum is about)?

there is a huge feature difference in the IDE, in the languages, in web support, etc.
this isnt really a topic for this forum ( which is for extensibility discussions ) so googling will lead you to pages like
that discusses the difference between ASP 1.x and ASP 2.0.
You can find similar pages for C#, VB, the IDE, etc. with directed searching. ON MSDN
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/products/compare/ lists the features for 2005
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/previous/2003/overview/whatsnew.aspx lists whats new for 2003.
from an extensibility standpoint there are lots of additions and changes. The VS SDK is a complete, from the ground-up rewrite of the extensibility kit. It now includes the Managed Package Framework for managed package extensibility. We include the full source code to the MPF in the SDK. We also include TFS, VSTA, DSL, and SDM extensibility in the SDK in addition to Debugger, Data, Help, and SCC extensibility that was in the VSIP 2003 SDK. New samples, updated docs, etc. Lots to look at.

VS.NET 2003 is wired to .NET 1.1 and VS 2005 is wired to .NET 2.0, although you can install extensions of .NET 3.0 (WWF, WCF, WPF). On the other hand, VS 2008 can target .NET 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5.
All that said, this forum is for VS extensibility, not for VS general questions.
