Removing AD server from network forever... what will be the impact?

By raghavme ·
I run a cybercafe with 40 XP pro PCs, 1 win2003 enterprise server.

DSL+DHCP --> win2003 DC/AD+DNS+safesquid+IIS+mySQL --> Switches --> XP pro PCs

I planned to run Active Directory to lock down the user environment, so after installing, i found a lot of things can go wrong, and i dont want to be the one worrying about the troubleshooting etc stuff also the backup etc. Too much work, as I don't have time to devote to that.

So, what will be implications, if i just uninstalled AD.. how to reset my client machines to default state... so they have nothing to do with the DOMAIN that i joined them to...

please suggest some policy on hwo to go about it, I am just experimenting with my free time. It is a production environment, don't want to stall the whole place down!
