Setting up trust between 2003 domain and 2000 domain

I have 2 domains that reside in seperate states that are connected by a VPN tunnel with 6mb of bandwidth and using cisco equipment. I was able to setup  DNS zones in each domain and have no problem loading the dns files from the masters. If I run NSLOOKUP from the 2003 DC and type the name of the remote domain i get the list of all the domain controllers in the remote domain.
However, when i go to create the trust though i get the error "Cannot Continue: The Local Security Authority is unable to obtain an RPC connection to the domain controller DC.DOMAIN.COM. I am able to ping both the domain controllers by their name and the domain names themselves in each direction. When i ping the domain name it returns the address of the DC that is SOA for that domain. I am stumped so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

also make sure NETBIOS is enabled on DC's(both forest) and on DNS servers (both forest) enable  conditional forwarding...

Thanks for the link and the extra tips Vahik, I had not run accross this support article during my several hours of surfing for an answer.

I am not sure why this worked but the end solution was quite simple. Instead of using the Domains and Trusts snap in I tried the alternative, NETDOM, and for some reason this worked even though the Domains and Trust snap in did not.

Thanks for your assistance.
