I have a Domain Controller that's windows server 2000 with a root CA installed on it.  I want to remove the DC role from that machine as I have setup 2 DCs with windows 2003.  The issue is that I don't know if by uninstalling the DC role from that server if the Certificate Authority will be impacted as well.  

Can the CA function without AD installed on that server?

Yes it can

The only thing you CANT do is rename the server holding the CA Role - But you can certainly demote it yes - without impacting the SA role :)
