Hello,

Apart from dcpromo it can be installed using following steps.
  1. Go to properties of my computer and click “Computer Name Tab”, and change.
  2. Set Computer’s NETBIOS name, in server 2003, can be changed after promoting to Domain Controller, click “More”.
  3. In Primary DNS suffix of this computer box enter domain nae very carefuly because if may done wrong have side effects.
  4. Click Ok
  5. Restart system on prompt
  6. Now configure TCP/IP settings:-
  7. In ctrl panel go to dial up connections and go to properties of Local Area Connection.
  8. Go to properties of TCP/IP.
  9. Now assign static IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address to this server, Enter the server's IP address in the Preferred DNS server box.
  10. Click Advanced.
  11. Click the DNS Tab.
  12. Select "Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes"
  13. Check "Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffix"
  14. Check "Register this connection's addresses in DNS". If this Windows 2000/2003-based DNS server is on an intranet, it should only point to its own IP address for DNS; do not enter IP addresses for other DNS servers here. If this server needs to resolve names on the Internet, it should have a forwarder configured.
  15. Click OK to close the Advanced TCP/IP Settings properties.
  16. Click OK to accept the changes to your TCP/IP configuration.
  17. Click OK to close the Local Area Connections properties.
 
Hope it works!!
