The 300D metering is set by its mode I am afraid, sorry. From memory it is evaluative in just about everything, but manual is average I think. No spot metering option.

There was a table in the manual that showed the metering mode I think, sorry I sold mine over a year ago.

You can get a firmware hack, WASI or something like that, that allowed you to take control of the flash exposure compensation.

Scan down This page and you will find a table that shows the metering and various other modes. In short, apart from Manual all are evaluative, except manual which is centre weight. Though interestingly if you use exposure lock it become partial metering.
