Active Directory Controllers

I installed my active directory controllers in reverse order.. my "secondary" controller I installed first, so it thinks it's the primary, but the box that I want to use as the "primary" AD controller was installed second so it isn't recognized as the primary controller.  

I could have sworn I saw a way to switch out the roles.. I want to say  "how do I promote my backup controller to be the Primary" but as I understand it, that's the old way....  But hopefully you get my drift.

where do I go to make those changes?

Active Directory has NO Primary and NO Backup - they are all Domain Controllers.  There are 5 operations masters that by default go on the first DC - See "How To View and Transfer FSMO Roles in Windows Server 2003" at;EN-US;324801
