You will need to change  all of the dns records for the server  and all sites
hosted on the server and ssp such as mysite

but Domain name will remain same as it is only IP will be change
and i am talking about the SharePoint 2003 not MOSS 2007

Not my area of expertise but I don't think that 2003 Virtual Servers or
even 2007 Web Applications can be IP bound. They must use port numbers
or host headers. There may be some workarounds to make them use an IP
address but the out of the box solutions are not IP dependant.

Not at all sure about how SharePoint 2003/2007 finds the database server
but I think it is the NetBios name, not the IP address.

As long as the DNS name stays the same SharePoint won't
care about the change  in IP address. You will only need to change it in
the DNS server  unless you've set up IIS websites to use specific IP
addresses. If you have specific IP addresses for websites you will also
need to make changes in IIS manager.

I understand

However, dns will return the old ip address  when queried for the same name, this
is why you need to update the ip adress for that name in dns, so that it returns
the new ip address

Agreed. I guess my wording was less than clear. I was trying to point
out that if you setup IIS to use specific IP addresses for specific
websites you will need to change  both IIS and DNS, but not SharePoint.

Is there is any Changes other than DNS ?
only in IIS it should be check in web application IP address  should not be
harcode. if it is then
it should be change.
i think it should work because SharePoint refers DNS name and Machine name
