Yes, you can. Use sp_addlinkedserver stored procedure.

I did the same thing for a migration recently - have had no problems.

I have used the following on Sql 7 (server A) ...
EXEC sp_addlinkedserver 'B', 'Sql Server'
EXEC sp_addlinkedsrvlogin 'B', false, 'sa', 'sa', 'password'
but cannot select from B's tables, nor does a display of table/view appear in A's tree.
