> Can I rename the spam folder in outlook? 

Yes.  (Well, as long as Outlook lets you - SpamBayes certainly doesn't care.
I gather that Outlook 2003 has a bulit in "Junk Mail" folder, which you
probably can't rename.  But you could use a different one, with any name,
for SpamBayes).

> If so, what do I have to change in spambayes?

Nothing.  If you move it to a different "store" (i.e. a different pst file,
to/from an Exchange/IMAP server, etc), then you'll need to go into the
SpamBayes Manager dialog, then the Filtering tab, click the Browse button
next to the spam folder, and reselect it.  If you just rename it, then
nothing is needed at all.
