In Windows 2000 we could use MAKEBOOT.EXE to create a set
of 4 floppy disks for use on systems that do not have
a "Boot From CD-ROM" capability. If there an equivalent
for Windows 2003?

No. A possibility might be to use a Win9x startup disk, that also loads
SMARTDRV, and start the install with WINNT. This MS Knowledge Base article
has more information:

Windows XP was the last OS that included this functionality.

There really can't be many systems that can't boot from CD, certainly few
that would be considered suitable for a server OS.
