In Windows Server 2003, you cannot do this. For Windows Server 2008, a feature is available that lets you synchronize the DSRM Administrator password with a domain user account.

How to synchronize the DSRM Administrator password on a Windows Server 2008-based domain controller with the password of a domain user account

After you apply this feature, you can synchronize the DSRM Administrator password on a Windows Server 2008-based domain controller with the password of a domain user account. To do this, run the following command on the Windows Server 2008-based domain controller:
ntdsutil "set dsrm password" "sync from domain account <AccountName>" q q
Note In this command, <AccountName> is a placeholder for the name of the domain user account that you want to use.

This command synchronizes the DSRM Administrator password one time. If you want to perform another synchronization, you must run this command again.
