only domain controller fails - got new server - best way?

SO let's say the only domain controller in my organization dies. No backup. I have a brand new server. So if I install windows 2008 on that server, assign the same ip address as the previous DC, create a new domain, with the same name as the previous one, same dns zones. Will everyone be able to log into the new domain controller without me doing something (joining new domain) on every computer? Will network printer work as before. (we are small org. and i dont mind recreating 10 user names in AD)
thanks

With hardware as cheap as it is, there's no reason to not have multiple virtual Domain Controllers, with whatever hypervisor you choose.  It can be done cheaply enough with hyper-v to accommodate the smallest IT shop.  My advice? Don't muck about with hypotheticals: standup a vDC for failover and get a solid backup in place BEFORE disaster strikes.

I dont think it will work because you need trust in order for them to communicate with each other or sid. But since it only 10 users. i dont think it is an issue to rejoining the domain.
