We have two win2k3 domains in this company - let's say domain 1 and 2.  On a domain 2 PC's local administrator group, I have already add a domain 1 admin account into it.    

From a server in domain 1, I still have trouble mapping to the domain 2 PC's admin$ share.  

Did I miss any step?

Thanks.

The drive cannot be mapped because no network was found.

Is there an existing trust relationship between the domains? Are the domains within the same forest? If so and you are using Server 2000 dc's or later a 2 way transitive trust should be created. See technet article opn trust concepts http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759554%28WS.10%29.aspx

Also re: "The drive cannot be mapped because no network was found", check that the Workstation service is running on the remote pc.

All good points - also verify that you can map to the admin$ share from within the same domain.
