How can I remove a node when the database is currently down?

One of nodes (02) in our four-node development cluster is having its hard drive worked on. It's unavailable and has been wiped. I'd like to bring the database up. However, node 02 was taken out _after_ the database was brought down. I would have thought that I could bring the db up, and the other nodes would recognize that 02 is unavailable, etc. Instead, the db refuses to come up. Is there a way to get around this (tell the system to remove the node, etc) and then bring the db up?

    If your system is K-safe 1, the database should come up with a node down.  If you aren't running K=1, then you will have data loss as the data from node 2 is not replicated anywhere else.
