On a Windows 2003 Network, what are the commands at the command line to determine and show which servers are the PDC or schema master and which are DNS, DCHP, etc, and which ones are domain controllers?  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

NETDOM will tell you all FSMO role holder in your domain.

Here is the command.
netdom query fsmo

netdom is available as Windows Server Support Tool on your Server CD.

As for DNS server, you can use ipconfig /all and It will give you the IP address for the DNS server in your domain.
