nt4 backup domain controller

We have an nt4 domain controller that is about ready to die.  It is on subnet .20.  We want to build an nt4 BDC, but we're at another location and our subnet is .10.  We're creating the nt4 box from scratch.  When installing nt4 server software, it sees the network adapter and the adapter psses the test, but when it comes time to sign on we get the message "Unable to find domain controller".  All cables, etc are working.  We've tried several and we're able to connect a laptop on the system.  

Can a BDC be created on a different subnet?  We filled out the correct DNS, WINS, etc. in setup.
