You can either link the servers together or use OPENROWSET or OPENDATASOURCE or using DTS.

Oops I see you are using SQL Server 2005, so it should be:

OPENROWSET

Use the Data Export/Import wizard:

Right click on the destination database choose "All Tasks"
then choose "Import data" at this point a wizard screen will pop up
screen 1: click next
screen 2:choose the data source, database and click next
screen 3:choose destination which and click next
screen 4: choose the first option "Copy table(s) and view(s) from the source database"
screen 5: choose the tables that you want to copy
screen 6: click next to finish the wizard and you are done

Note: if you want to save this as a DTS package
in the last screen choose save as DTS package
