How to Remove A Dead Domain Controller from Active Directory

Next question gang.

I have a dead Domain Controller on my AD.  I'm running Server 2003 Standard.  There are other DC's on the network.  All roles have been seized and moved from the dead server to good, running DC's.

My AD still shows that the DC is there just not responding.  How do I remove that server from the AD?  Again, it will not be coming back so I need to force it.  Most things I find are on Server2008.

Thanks

John

Thank you both.  It is a little scary working with the AD.  Never know is you'll break it bad.

Mike, you were first and I liked the detail in that article.  Made me feel good that I got similar messages.

Mike, thanks for the input.  I used that just to validate what Mike gave me.
