In Word 2003 you can do it Oct 23, 2007

I have Windows XP and Word 2003 English version.
This is from the Help file of Word:

Lay out an East Asian document for vertical text
The feature or some of the options described in this Help topic are only available if support for Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, or Korean is enabled through Microsoft Office Language Settings.

For more information about how to enable a language for editing, see Enable editing of multiple languages.

You can specify layout options for a document so that the text flows vertically, rather than horizontally.

On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then click the Document Grid tab.
Under Text flow, click Vertical.

Tip By default, the page orientation switches to landscape. To use a vertical page orientation, click the Margins tab, and then click Portrait.

To lay out the vertical text in horizontal rows on the page, specify the number of horizontal rows that you want in the Columns box on the Document Grid tab.
Tip To adjust the height and the spacing of the rows, on the Format menu, click Columns, and then in the Columns dialog box, change the Width and Spacing settings. To specify the height and spacing of each row, clear the Equal column width check box.

I am not sure if this is included in Word 2000, but you may want to check it.
