Just create the separate IP subnet for the new site in the subnets container. Create the new site and name it appropriately. Find the server in the Default First site and move it to the new site. Done.

See http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/activedirectory/stepbystep/adsrv.mspx

In the Sites and Services console click on Subnets in the Console Tree. Right-click in the main window, press New Subnet, enter the IP and subnet mask, then link the subnet to the correct site.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Oh and obviously don't forget the actual equipment needs changing to match the new subnet!

nothing will happen if you change the name :)

if you have two subnets, create them both and assign to the same site

Hi mate - do I not get any points for answering your original part of the question? I think a split between Jay_Jay and my answer wouldn't go amiss...
