Can you please explain exactly what you are trying to do.

If you are trying to set up a new domain in an existing forest then when you DCPROMO the new Domain controller, point it at the existing domain controller/DNS server for its DNS and select

New Domain Controller for New Domain
New Child Domain in Existing forest

OK if you want a completly different domain name then you have need to set it up as a new domain in the same forect , assuming that you want the domains to trust each other.

Alternatively you can set up a completly independant domain, new domain, new forest (they will not trust each other - but you could then create a trust between them if needs be)

To demote the cd, get a command line and type DCPROMO
if you get an error then repeat with DCPROMO /forceremoval
