I have two TCP/IP networks: A & B.
Each has one DC and AD with their own domain a.com & b.com running W2K server.
One of the DC's has two nics with routing setup connecting the two networks.

How do I have users in network A use resources in network B? (there are Win98's and XP's)
How do I creat a forest out of these two networks?  Is this necesary?

Thanks

The advantage of a forest is you can manage them more easily. Do you need to this? Depends? Do you need to maintain seperate domain names for business purposes. AD does not have a  40000 object limit on its size.

My question would be can I consolidate the 2 domains to one?

I believe that you ned to run DCpromo on one of the DC's in the secondary network, but I will run up a test lab and confirm this.

I need two separate domains, so I don't want to consolidate them into one.
How do you create a forest?
Let me know about the lab test.
Thanks

The only way I have found is using DC Promo from a member server. On a DC this is a destructive change. Hopefully someone else may have an alternative method
