Setting up Forest Trust between Windows 2008 and Windows 2003 R2 issues

I have a domain in 2003 R2, Domaina.com, then I have a domain in 2008, domainb.com

I am trying to setup a Forest Trust (Both are in 2003 Compatibility) and when I try to join from the 2003 side I get an error about no logon server available to service the request, though I have the forwarders in place on both sides and I can ping both domains from each other with no issues. Any ideas?

Are you using the same administrator name and password in both forests.  If so change one of them and try again.

Actually there are different admin passwords for both forests.

Have you tried using a different account?

I can't even get that far. When I put in the domain, it errors out almost immediately.
