DNS - Changing W2K Domain Controller IP addresses

I have two AD domain controllers using 192.168.0.X IP addresses. I would like to change the IP addresses to 172.16.0.X addresses. DNS is setup on both DC's using AD integrated.

Can someone tell me the proper way to change the IP addresses without causing DNS issues? I understand that I need to:  Delete:   type A records, reset the information in SOA and NS records and then:

ipconfig /flushdns Enter
Net Stop DNS  Enter
Net Start DNS  Enter
Net Stop Netlogon Enter
Net Start Netlogon

Are there any other steps I need to be aware of? Is there a specific order I need to do this for both domain controllers? Other steps to ensure this works?
