I am using a linked server from a MS SQL Server 2000 server to a MS SQL Server 2005 server.
Now, I try to create a view through Enterprise Manager with the simple command:

SELECT * FROM  LinkedServerName.DBName.OwnerName.TableName

This works when I run it in the "New View" window (with the red exclamation mark), but as soon as I save the view, this error occurs:
ODCB error: [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]The operation could not be performed because the OLE DB provider 'SQLOLEDB' was unable to begin a distributed transaction.
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server][OLE/DB provider returned message: New transaction cannot enlist in the specified transaction coordinator. ]
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'SQLOLEDB' ITransactionJoi JoinTransaction returned 0x8004d00a].

Can anyone enlighten me on this subject?

Thank you!
