From Domain to peer-to-peer network

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Currently I have have a small network (3 computers) authenticating to Win2000 Domain Controller. The client don't want to use that server any longer.  They have printers and files hostes on another powerfull copmuter, one these 3.  They are moving to another office.
Can I just unplug the computers and leave the server behind?  Will I have too much problems reconfiguring these computers in the new office to act like peer-to-peer?
Please advice.
