When creating a Linked Server, and you select SQL Server, you have to enter the Name of the SQL Server as the Name of the Linked Server. Is there someway around this, without having to click Other and specify the username & password in plain text in the Provider String textbox?

No, when creating a linked server through Management Studio in SQL 2005.

When I clicked on "New Linked Server", you type the "Linked Server" name.
Then Server Type should be SQL Server.
Then on the left, click on Security, and on the right, click Add.
The password is NOT in plain text!
