I tried the wizzard to set up a domain trust between two domains but at the end it tells me that is cannot creat the trust because the domain could not be contacteed. ....I figure this to be logical since I have no record of the other domain in the DNS. Do I need so set up somethin in the DNS first before i can create the trust ? if so  can you explain what I need to do .....thanks in advance

To start would have to establish dns connectivity both ways, usually the
easiest thing to do would be to create secondary's of each others primary.

Once established you can then go and create your Forest trust, this
establishes a two trust.
