Quorum Cluster Possible owners - error

I have a W2K3 ENT 64-bit Cluster for SQL 2K5. I added two new nodes to the cluster and removed the older nodes from the SQL cluster. They are however still nodes in the MS Cluster. When I attempt to remove the older systems as possible owners of the Q: physical drive, I get the following message "An error occurred attempting to remove node <servername> as a possible owner of the Disk Q resource. This operation cannot be performed on the cluster resource as it is the quorum resource. You may not bring the resource offline or modify its possible owner list. Error ID 5068 (000013cc)."

I need to make this happen and then evict the nodes from the MS Cluster service.

What would be the implications of merely evicting the nodes without makign the resource changes? The current owner is one of the new servers. The passive node in the cluster is also a new server. Can I simply evict the older nodes without problems?

Yes. That is the point, you must evict the nodes you want to dismiss. The possible owners' list will be updated automaticaly as it's populated by the global node's list present in the cluster.

Sorry to just be accepting the solution. The eviction solution was the necessary process to complete the Cluster migration to new hardware.
