Are these two domains existing already or just planned?

Are they the same company?  

If so they should almost certainly be two domains in the same forest or even just one domain split into two sites with OU's for objects on each site to delegate local control as needed.

If you already have two domains in separate forests then a trust can be setup in AD Domains & Trusts, will give more detail if you want it.

These domains are already functional also these domains are in seperate forests. The domains are in two locations and different companies.

The link that Dragon has posted to you should work fine. It will then be down to the administrator of the remote company and yourself to work out the permissions etc of who can get to what. I will say now that this can be a fraught exercise with a fair amount of he said/she said mentality. You really do need to get your game plan right before you start off.
