The global catalog server is the only machine that holds all the information
about your active directory domain. 
To set up a new DC and replicate the information, please note that you will
need atleast one global catalog server on the domain, since that is the only
machine that holds information about your domain. 
Restore the crashed server from tape backups.. if you have any.
