Changing IP address on Win 2000 server running DNS

I am changing the private IP addressing in my network from 10.10.10.x to 10.27.0.x.  I have a
server which is currently  running DNS and I would like to know the required steps to make the changes on this server; specifically what is required to facilitate the DNS changes.

Along with north_ make sure you update all static devices and dns records associated with them.  Update your DHCP pool to match also.
