Equals sign in Excel 2003

When I try to type the equals sign, Excel takes it as the start of a formula. I formatted the cell to text.
How do I get Excel to do what I want instead of what it wants? i.e how do I type the equals sign as text.

No prob in 2007, but something I've found with Excel previously with formatting to text, you must format the cell BEFORE typing in your text, it does not seem to convert well.
