Is this Standard Server or SBS Standard?  HUGE difference and you can do what you want with one but not the other.  (You posted in the SBS zone - but you said you have server 2003 "stand alone" (no such version by the way).

Read this article:
http://www.petri.co.il/windows_2003_domain_rename.htm (and the tools to do this are linked in the first link of the "Links" section of the page)

NOTE: certain items, when on the server or domain, make it impossible to rename the domain - if it's just a basic install, the above link should do the trick.  READ THE LINK CAREFULLY as it should explain when you CANNOT rename the domain.
