We are re-IP addressing one of our offices and then new IP addresses will be totally different from what was used previously. We have two windows 2000 Domain Controlers running Active Directory, DNS, DHCP and WINS and we are concerned that there might be a large number of things that can go wrong. I am wondering if anyone that has had to perform a similar change can tell us what we might need to look out for.

Thanks.

This should be pretty straightforward, assuming that you're comfortable administering a Win2k/AD network. Perhaps a refresher on the meat and potatoes of AD authentication, particularly DNS and Netlogon, in relation to DC locating by clients. Here's a nice link:

I would stop both DNS and Netlogon, make the changes (NS, SOA, A, etc), or at least double check 'em. Are the zones AD integrated? Since WINS, are the DNS servers configured for dynamic update? Are your DHCP scope options configured for DNS & WINS? Don't forget to flush DNS cache on all boxes and reboot. Just a few things to think about checking and changing.
