We currently have a Windows 2000 domain with the singlelabel domain. We have had numerous problem with this type of domain name. the current domain is named aaronii. How do we convert this to a internal domain naming structure such as aaroni.local. This will help us tremendously.

If you were planning to upgrade your domain to W2k3, this might be the time to do it, since you can rename a W2k3 domain:
Windows Server 2003 Domain Rename Tools
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/downloads/domainrename.mspx

If you don't want to or can't upgrade, but you still have a NT4 BDC (or your domain is still running in mixed mode), you can try to rename it using this article:
How to Rename the DNS Name of a Windows 2000 Domain
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=292541

If this doesn't work either, you can try to soften the impact a bit:
Information About Configuring Windows 2000 for Domains With Single-Label DNS Names
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=300684

If neither of these work, I'm afraid you'll have to do a reinstall.
