It really depends if you can login to the server first.

If you are running an Active Directory Environment, you will need to run dcpromo from the run command line and REMOVE your Active Directory from this server.  Then reboot, and MAKE SURE you have first reset the local Administrator user account prior to reboot.

Then log in as local administrator, and run dcpromo again, and using the wizard, configure your new domain.  Alternately, if the other domain exists already, you can confiigure a trust relationship between the domains.
