I tried to install it on my laptop and I do not see this option. I started installation from cd. In first window I clicked Install Products, then checked "AutoCAD 2011" -> next -> checked "I accept" in Licence Agreement -> next -> filled User and Product Information, chacked "I have my product information" radio button, filled serial number and product key -> next -> and in this window I see that my installation is standalone.

 

I haven't saw any network license option.

In 2011, the default is stand-alone. You have to configure the product as a custom install to choose the network option.

Is it possible to this without use of other windows machine running as server? I have only one linux machine and I cannot have another used for sharing deployed installation folder.

You don't have to create a deployment.  You can install a network version direct from disc.  You just have to choose configure and then choose the network option over stand-alone.

Ok I see this option. I have one more question, Is it possible to use AutoCAD outside local network? Becouse I am currently out of office and when I put address in the name of server field I get the pop up window with information that this server name doesn't exist or is currently unavailable.

Yes, you can borrow a license when you go offline.  Borrowing is under the Tools menu or also under Help>About>Product Information.  Simply pick the term length from the calendar pop-up and it will borrow the license for use off the network.
