Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection (Linked Server)

I have SQL 7 And SQL 2000.
I would like to setup a trigger in SQL7 that updates a table in SQL2000.
So i created a linked Server in SQL7 pointing to SQL2000.

When i was logged into the SQL server it worked perfectly.

However I logged off and now using the Enterprise manager of another machine to do the work.
When i atempt the connection i get:
Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.

I created an Admin user for the Linked Server on SQL2000.

Still no lock.

Please H.E.L.P!!

Check the security context for the linked server.  Be sure that the use logged in either has an alias on the 2000 machine or you have "Users no listed use the folowing context" checked with the admin acount logon and password entered.

Let Me know . . . =)

The user belongs is a domain user and belongs to Admin group of the 2000 machine.
"Users no listed use the folowing context" is set to a domain admin user.

:(

Did not work

Okay, un the security context on the 7.0 machine, enter in Domain\Username and check impersonate.  This forces the linked server to use the same login on the other side . . .  

Let me know . . .

OK, I have not found a solution for this. And as i need to get fast on this here is a detailed description of what we have:
1. I have 2 SQL Servers one is 2000 and one is 7.
2. I am trying to link to them so i can execute a command from the 7 Server (NT4) to the SQL 2000 (Win 2000) Server (in triggers for example).
3. The Servers are in Novell Network. With a Domain controlers.

Here is What i am getting:
a. When i am logged in the server station and the Linked Server SECURITY set to "Use the Logged in security context". It works. However When I log off the station and use the Enterprise Manager of another server it gives me "Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'"!.

so,
b. I set the Linked Server security to use MY user Name and password (I am the Admin) but now i got:
"Login failed for user 'NTServer\MyAdmin'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection."

What am i doing wrong?????????????????????????

Sorry, I am deleting this because non of the answers given was correct.
I had to Call Microsoft. And as it turns you can not use NT security for linked servers with SQL 7.
