Domain admin in order to dcpromo?

Probably this is a very easy question for most of the experts here! :)
We want to dcpromo a server in a remote site in order to serve as domain controller for our WIN2K3 domain. The "problem" is that we will send a technician there and we do not want to give him domain admin permissions. Is it possible to allow a "low level" user to promote a server as a domain controller by just giving him limited permissions?
Thank you very much in advance for any response.

Yeah DA rights for the dcpromo.
Do you have a DRAC or iLO port on the server or can you just have the tech install the server and add it to the domain and then from there you all can remote in and promote it?
I've never even tried to delegate (always used a DA).  There was an interesting blog on the subject here
