I ran DCPROMO on a Windows 2003 service pack 2 server and received a message that the DFS service was not running on that server, and the AD installation ended.  I've never had that happen before.  I've never installed DFS on any "to be Domain Controller" and I've been able to DCPROMO other servers.  What am I missing, and how do I get AD to install?  Do I simply install DFS.  Of so, how do I configure DFS?
