If I delete a computer from the domain does it delete the users profile?

I need to replace a W2K computer on a domain with a Windows 7 computer(laptop), but I want to keep the same computer name.I need the ip, username, profile to stay the same. Can I delete the computer from the domain and name the new computer that name I deleted and still keep the users profile on the new machine, as if it was the old one?

    Why can't you back up the profile then create the user on the new machine then copy the saved profile back?

    the profile will be stored on the win 2000 machine as long as you dont format it there should be no problem
