Subject: [windows2000] Deleting a domain controller that no longer exists

How can I delete a DC that is no longer available to the domain?  We had an 
NT4.0 server that was a domain controller in a mixed NT4.0 / Windows 2000 
domain, but it in essence died.  Now when we try to delete it from Active 
Directory, we receive the "DSA object could not be deleted" message.  Any 
ideas?  Also, while we're on the subject, I have a different NT4 server on the 
network that I would like to get rid of  as well, but we can't run dcpromo on 
that one, can we?  Thanks in advance,
