are you running any other roles on this server? Have you restarted it and tried to re-add the role? Also what is the topology of the network this is being added to (is this the first domain controller in a new domain, new forest or a member controller etc)?

Is the server configured with dynamic IP? Is there any error message on event viewer? Is this first dc on your 2003 environment? Have prepared the adprep/domainprep, adprep/forestprep,adpre/gpprep?
