Active Directory server recovery

I have two Windows 2003 Active Directory Server in my domain.  One has crashed.  What is the best way to restore it back to where it was. It is one of my internal dns server and it is also a printer server.  Every time it boots is gets to  "Preparing Network Connections" and just stays there for a while and re-boots on it's own.  What are the steps I should take to recover this server?

Well, I hate to ask but did you ever back up the system state on this box?  Do you have an ASR disk?  If so, you can hold down F3 when prompted during the install to try to get back much of your operating system.

I have both of those.  System state backed up and an ASR disk
