We just acquired another company. They have their own domain and we have our own. We want to be able to access resources on either domain. We are talking about setting up a trust relationship.

They are running Windows 2003 native and we are running Windows 2000 mixed (even though the server is Small Business 2003). None of our other servers are Windows 2000 but Windows 2003.  

How would we go about setting up a trust?  I am worried about conditional forwarding of DNS and the amount of traffic that it might produce. I heard Windows 2000 doesnt support 2000.  Is this true?
