Remove DC from AD

Hello Experts,
I have a DC that was removed over a year ago and did not have DCPROMO run.  How can I delete this DC from AD?  Again, the DC is no longer available on the network.

Thanks,
Paul

I have tried this solution, but unless I am missing something this solution is looking for the server to still be on the network.

"Procedure 1: Windows Server 2003 SP1 only"  makes no mention of the original DC, only AD references to it.
On Safar (account needed) there is the AD cookbook :  Recipe 3.6. Removing an Unsuccessfully Demoted Domain Controller.  It looks similar
