AD Sites and Services

I have a Windows 2003 server that I have run a DCPromo on.  I have Ad installed and I have setup DNS.  This server will be a remote DC and I am trying to get it setup so that it will work correctly when installed.  Currently I have it on a DHCP address, but it will have a static address outside of our IP and subnet range.  I wanted to get it setup and replicating correctly.  I found an article that stated I needed to make sure to change it to the correct static address before I shipped it, which isn't a problem.  I have made it a Global Catalog server and it appears to be working and replicating on our network with no errors.  
However, I am not sure what I need to setup in Sites and Services and when I should set it up.  I have created a site for the remote location, but the DC currently falls under my main site.  The subnet for the remote location has not been created and DHCP has not been installed on the DC, we intend to install it at the remote site.  
This is the first remote DC I have setup and I would really like it to work out of the box.  Any insight is appreciated.
