SBS2003 and Domain Controllers issues

We just picked up a new real estate client who's running on SBS 2003 Standard.  Always fun picking up the pieces.  Anyway,  I'm trying to get a few things going on the server for the agents... one of them being RWW.  I don't see the  configuration for CEICW installed so I was trying to run change / remove on the SBS Server to see what was going on.  Low and Behold I got an error message saying that I needed to be a member of Domain Admins, Schema Admins, and Enterprise Admins.  I'm logged in as Administrator and am members of the groups.  Looking into the error message  more I see that it can be caused when I bad dcpromo took place.  This seems to be what has happened.

There is only a single server setup in the office,  when I go to AD Sites and Services there are 2 Domain Controllers listed  for all intensive purposes lets call them new_server and old_server.  If I try to delete it I get an error message: Do not delete the OLD_SERVER container object. OLD_SERVER contains objects representing domain controller OLD_SERVER and possibly other domain coontrollers...  goes on to saying run dcpromo.  I'm a little shakey around dcpromo and don't want to completely demote the current AD.   I also see the "OLD_SERVER" instance listed in AD Users and Computers under Domain Controllers, I also can't remove it from there.

Any direction would be great.
