I have two windows 2003 domains, one is called office and one is called dmz.local.  I need to have dmz.local trust the office domain, but when I try to establish a new trust and type office for the domain name it says that it can't find it.  These domains use the same DNS server but are on different networks, so I assume the lack of a DNS suffix is causing the problem.  I can't figure out how to tell dmz.local where the DC for the office domain is.  I've tried using the lmhosts file as such, but no success:
