I just got done building some reports on my report server (local workstation, windows xp) that runs a report from a database hosted on a server 2003 box with SQL 2000 running on it.  

When my users go to the link I've provided them they get the following error:

An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted) Get Online Help
Cannot create a connection to data source 'HRSOURCE'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection) Get Online Help
Login failed for user '(null)'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.


I added them to the security level for the report as a browser (through the web interface), and I gave them select permissions on the table in the database itself.  Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
