Can I rename my Windows 2000 domain?

I have a mixed environment -- Windows 2000 and NT. The internal Win2k domain name needs to be changed due to management decisions. How can I achieve this? I am running in mixed mode at present but have to get over this hurdle before I can migrate fully.

You cannot rename the domain. You can build a new domain and migrate all of the information to the new domain, but the old one cannot be renamed.
