I don't actually think you can remove Active Directory from your server cleanly.

You probably would be better off bringing up two new servers.

Bringing up a new DC is pretty straight forward especially if your sticking to server 2003.

once you have your server installed, run dcpromo.exe

Then I would suggest bringing up another to move your exchange to.

Bring online a second DC on new machine and transfer all FSMO roles to it. Update all DNS client entries to use new DC as primary. Demote the incumbant DC
