We used to have a Windows 2000 Server as our Domain Controller, with a 2003 Server as a backup.  The 2000 Server 'died' a while back and I have the 2003 server running our AD, DNS, DHCP (etc) which all seems to be working fine.  I am trying to rasie the Domain level to 2003, as we have no other 2000 Servers on the network but I can't because the exported text file still seems to think that our old server is in charge.  How an I erradicate all traces of our old DC, as I ca't demote it because it's dead.
