Lost Domain Controller

We had a network that had three servers - 1 Domain Controller (Win2K) - 1 Child DC (Win2K). The PDC crashed and there was no Global Catalog on the second server. I need to seize the FSMO roles on the second server and make it the PDC. When I attempt to seize the roles it says that it can't contact the PDC. How can I seize the roles to make the CDC (BDC) the PDC?

Its very important that once you seize the roles don't ever bring the original back online.  So if somehow the original can be fixed don't turn it on.  (wipe and reinstall in that case)
