Uninstall SQL 2000 for every instance. Evict the nodes. Nuke and path the
machines.

Cheers,

Re: How to remove a cluster

Uninstall the SQL instances, stop the cluster service and evict nodes until
you're down to one left. Then just evict the last node. No need to rebuild
the servers as the service is installed out of the box with W2K3.

If you want to, you can also go clean up the DNS record(s) and computer
object(s) in AD, but this is not necessary.
