Having successfully changed the default paper size in the printer driver, Word will automatically assume that size. Sounds like you're trying to change it the wrong way round.

Click the 'paper size' tab
Set the paper size to A4, then click the 'default' button. Click 'yes' to the prompt which will pop up. This will change the default setting in the 'Normal' template (normal.dot).
I must stress that I use Word 2000, but Word 2003 should have a similar page setup dialog.
as a general rule you should not mess with normal.dot by trying to edit it directly as this can have a drastic effect on ALL your word documents. Windows will change/edit the normal.dot file automatically when you change things like the default page size in Page Setup. Normal.dot is not intended to be user-editable and will usually be 'locked' to prevent you doing so -- that's an indication of how unwise it is to edit it directly. it shouldn't be necessary except by advanced users.

Beyond that I can suggest nothing else.
