dcpromo / downgrade w2k3 domain controller to workgroup member (pr

Installed windows 2003 server on a new machine in my workgroup network.
Unfortunately set it up as a domain controller. Tried down-promoting it via
dcpromo... had various problems latest being that it can't delete active
directory because domain has a "child directory partition"... how to delete
teh child directory partition??
I find that the server machine has problems finding one of the workgroup
machines (used browstat confirmed that the server sees itself as the master
but workgroup machines see one of the workgroups as master)... I also find
that access to/from the server machine is extremely slow... (especially
establishing the access)
I am hoping that down-promoting the w2k3 server machine to a workgroup
machine will help these network connection issues...
Thanks in advance for your help/ideas etc.
