Agree - you need to seize the FSMO roles.  I prefer Petri's reference on the topic:

the short of it after confirming that the current FSMO role server will not be brought back without OS reinstall,
ntdsutil is the command to use to seize.
Depending on how many DCs you have, and which DC you want to make the master.
login into that system, use ntdsutil as referenced by Mohammed  and Lee.

Make sure to list the roles first to confirm you only seizing those roles from the dead server and not grabbing an assortment that might lead to invalidating one or more functional DC that has/have one of the roles, RID master, FSMO, SCHEMA master, etc.
