Remove workstation from domain and rename

All my workstations are either XP or 2000
I've got about 250 computers that need to be renamed. I would like to automate as much of this as possible.

1) remove from domain
2) rename
3) rejoin domain

I'd probably have to run it off of a floppy which is fine.
Is this possible or am I asking too much of the good old faithful batch file?

Thanks

Your question is partly answered in this above thread.
Pstools have most of the tools you need.
You need to have netdom.exe and baptize.exe

Check the other links. They are good infos.

The script is not so hard to create.
A .bat file is enough.

Longbow,

Netdom on it's own is what did the trick.

Thanks
