    Why do you think DNS needs removing?
    Assuming it is AD integrated, all you need to do is change the IP address of the server then run IPCONFIG/REGISTERDNS
    Repeat for all other servers with static IP addresses
    Also change DHCP scope and then repair network on clients

      If you do need to reinstall DNS, Daniel has an article on this site about installing and configuring DNS in Windows Server 2003. It will show you where to go to install DNS, which is also where to go to uninstall it first.
