you need to do more than that because you have to remove AD from it...you need to run dcpromo on it.

All windows 2000 Server installation believe themselves to be member severs when they are initially installed. To create the server as a domain controller, an administrator needs to run dcpromo.exe to install Active Directory. The easiest way to make a domain controller a member server (and the only way, as far as I know) is to re-run dcpromo.exe and choose to remove Active Directory from that server.
