AD cleanup

We have a windows 2000 domain currently running.
I am still seeing old computer, old DC's. the old Domain (systems were joined to our 8 months ago).
I would like to clean up AD, get a list of all the DC's, GC's, and any DNS/WINS that may be running.
We have exchange 2003 on windows 2000 server.

Is there away to pull a report from the servers with all this data?
How do I force teh servers to clean out the old systems and DC's?

Follow the link that Yor gave you. And, as Herb mentioned, you will need to
connect to an existing Domain Controller when using ntdsutil and then select
the Domain Controller that was incorrectly removed. This is a common error
that people make. They try to connect - or bind - to the Domain Controller
that they are trying to remove. You will get an error a few steps later.
Although it is clearly stated in the MSKB Article I guess that most people
overlook this.
