Hi agbor1960,
Yes you can but if your clients are statically assigned they will need changing also, of yout using DHCP for all your addresses it wont matter (change the DNS server IP and the WINS server IP in the DHCP scope though)

Right click my network places, select properties
right click the connection select properties
drill down to TCP/IP
and make thye change

Then open administrative tools > dns

On the scope properties change the IP address of the WINS and DNS server to your new IP address, then reboot the server

agbor1960,
also depending on the subnet mask that new IP address may be on another network! check it first
