Remove Entire Exchange Organization

How can I manually delete an entire Exhcnage Organization out Active Directory?  I see that you can do it in ADSIEDIT, but I did not find any info on what to delete.  Any help?

Both of exchange servers are done for and we are going to start over.  Once I remove that, I know how to clean up the DC issues in AD.  But, I want to rid of exchange completely....

open ADSIEDIT....and remove the key as in the Figure 2: Remove server with ADSIEDIT.

Make sure you clean up the box of all the exchange folders. All the Exchsrvr folder to be deleted or safely rename it to exchsrvr.old

I have removed the server I need to rid of the Organization.  The setup.exe /removeorg switch is not working.  It tells me I need to be an Exchange Organization Administator at the organization level.  

I am logged in as administrator.....So I do not understand...
