Manually transferring Schema Master role back to original server

Hey all,

Is there anybody knows how can I take back the schema master role from a server 2008 after it was died?

The scenario:

There is an SBS2003 server, that I need to migrate to a virtual machine with Server 2008 and Exchange 2007. Before installing EX2007 I have to transfer the schema master role from SBS2003. It has just happened, but meanwhile the virtual machine has died and I need to take back the schema master role from it.

Any helps I appreciate,

How to transfer

if one of your FSMO role servers dies then look here, if recent change were make it be better to get the dead server back. If you think all changes were in sync then seize it.
