I have two office locations.  Location one currently has an Exchange 2000 Server.  Location two is connected to location one via a Point to Point T-1.  The users at location two connect to the Exchange Server at location one.  We are looking to add an Exchange server at location two and have those local users connect to their own Exchange server.  Any ideas on the process of accomplishing this task?  I have the location two server set up with Windows 2000.

You can add an Exchange server to the 2nd location. Best practice is to have a domain controller there, but I guess you already got that.
Add the exchange server to the same organization.
You can define routing groups to control the replication of data to both servers

Check the following for routing group connectors

And after that use the move mailbox functionality in AD to move the mailbox to the new server
