Collapsing Windows domains within same forest

By mschuljak ·
what tools are available for collapsing Windows 2003 domains. We have several child domains within our forest and would like to collapse them all into our parent domain. This will o obviously cause a DNS nightmare. Any input would be appreciated since it doesn't seem to come up with much in my web searches. Thanks.
