I am using a domain controller and additional domain controller in my office. I want to remove additional domain controller from my network and just want to use main Domain controller. If I re install additional domain controller (server 2003) with different computer name and IP address, Will it be enough to remove additional domain controller from the network or I still need to do some changes in Main domain controller. I hope you understand my Question. Waiting for your reply... Thanks in advance.

Why you need to remove it ? Having two is not bad, it's a way to have redundency in your network.
For your original's question, start by checking if the server hold FSMO's roles, and after transfering them, run dcpromo and select to remove AD from the server.
