When selecting "Use cached exchange mode" can the outlook.ost file grow to exced 2 Gig or will a new file automatically be generated before reaching that limit?  Thank you.

Since Outlook 2003 now, by default, uses Unicode it supports up to 20GB. Also see:

The .pst file has a different format and folder size limit in Outlook 2003:

Microsoft Outlook and Exchange have no built-in functions to rescue the oversized OST file. Microsoft only released several service packs so that when the OST file size approaches the 2GB limit, Outlook will show some error messages and stop accepting any new data. This mechanism, to a certain extent, can prevent the OST file from being oversized. But once the limit is reached, you can hardly do anything with the OST file, such as send/receive emails, make appointments, write notes, synchronization, etc. Read more :- http://www.osttopstconverter-tool.com/
