Setup Trust Relationship failed - Access denied

I have two Windows Nt4.0 domains on the same physical network and require a standard one-way trust (Resource-> User).

The PDC in the User domain is a 'Small Business System' (SBS), the Resource domain's PDC is a standard NT server install.

I have tried to set the trust as :
User domain - Trusted
Resource Domain - Trusting

1. The Resource domain has no problems with initial setup of the trust (Trusted).

2. The User domain initial setup responds "Access is denied" after setting the 'Trusting' Domain and the two identital passwords.

3. I have confirmed that the each server is added to the Server Manager list of computers. I have also tried the trust without the PDCs added to Server Manager.

4. I can add the User domain as a 'Trusting' domain to the Resource domain. That is backwards to the way required. However, when I try to set the trust on the User domain "Access is denied" pops up again.

Could it be that the 'SBS' version of NT does not allow 'Trust' setups between domains or am I doing something else wrong?

Other:
A. I can access the each other PDC using the UNC name. eg. "\\User" (Same Username/password on each)
B. Ping tests all OK.

The main reason behind releasing SBS is using all Back Office products in a SINGLE DOMAIN. There is no way to make any trust relation ship with another domain. Unfortunately I couldn't found anything in Microsoft Site or TechNet CD to mention it here for more confirmation. But that what I'm SURE about. Try to check in SBS help.

If I remember correctly SBS will not allow trusts. That was one feature removed to lower the price. You could check on Microsoft site under SBS to verify this.
