which steps should I follow in order to recreate domain and jonin cluster nodes to it?

We have 2 domain controller servers with windows 2003 standart edition 32 bit. Duty of these two servers is only to supply dns and domain control. We have also 2 more servers with windows 2003 enterprise edition 32 bit. They are connected to a SAN device which is IBM DS4300 with 3TB storage. (2 TB is full now) We have faced a virus attack and one of our dc is not functioning so we have removed its domain control role. Also we need to format other dc server because it has some problems also. After that we need to format our cluster servers (only disks over servers not the SAN) in order to have well installed windows  then we will make them member of our new domain in order to create cluster again. We don't want to lost any data while doing that. My question is which steps should we follow in order to achive that? ps. domain controllers are only for cluster servers there is no other member of this domain.

which application you were using in cluster?

if the application on cluster can be attached to its config and data file on SAN you will not loose any data, just follow the steps in the application clustering guide.

you can now connect san disks to the cluster nodes and start windows clustering. you will not loose data as you are not required to format the disk again.

My resources are generally physical disks and file shares. Also We are using MS SQL Server 2000 Standart Edition. This configuration was working well until a virus attack to our systems and now we need to recreate our domain. We have just formatted 2nd domain controller then we created a new domain. Then we have moved cluster servers to new domain by using http://support.microsoft.com/kb/269196 article of Microsoft. Now we are testing this servers to see if something will go wrong or not. I will be glad if you give me some advise or tell me the points to care them during this procedure.
