I need to know how to correctly link two SQL servers in this environment.

PC #1
SQL Server 2005 x64
Windows 2003 Server Ent ed (domain controller)
Mixed Mode Authentication

PC #2
SQL Server 2000 SP4
Windows 2003 Std Ed (member server)
Mixed Mode Authentication

What I need is to link the two servers together so users can query across the PC's.  I currently can query some from PC #1 to PC #2, but with limited results.   This is based on SQL authentication not Domain.   How do you set up the domain authentication to work correctly?

Well we have all that done and I can do a query from the PC#1 to PC#2, but not from PC#2 to PC#1.  I am getting this error, which I can find very little about on the web.

Server: Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
OLE DB provider 'SQLOLEDB' reported an error.  
[OLE/DB provider returned message: Unspecified error]
OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'SQLOLEDB' IDBInitialize::Initialize returned 0x80004005:   ].

Any ideas on what to check?

You will have to set up a linkes server on PC#2 to PC#1 as well if you want to query both ways
