If you are talking about a domain controller then when you run the DCPROMO you either need to be in the physical network or at worse have a VPN to it with a relavent VPN and DNS settings to connect to the server.

I'm not entirely clear on the question.  You may install the Server 2003 operating system with the server disconnected from any network.  You may then connect to the network at a later time in order to join a domain or promote the server to be an additional domain controller.  You cannot do either of those things without network connectivity to an existing domain controller, however.
