We had a DC in our branch office on our domain that crashed and burned.    How do I take this computer totally out of the AD trust ?  We are still getting some errors in the event logs where systems are trying to get time from the old server, etc.  I just want to take it out of the mix all together.  This is a Windows 2003 environment.  Thanks!

Buried in the first procedure by Microsoft are steps to remove references to the old server from DNS.  It is very important to do this to avoid continued complaints from other devices.  

The second reference from usefulglyphs doesn't mention cleaning DNS at all but please do it.
