How to query a table in a remote DB server?

I want to query a table in the remote DB server.

Server A: 10.100.10.170   (2005)
        DB: MyAdmin
        Table:  MyProcessType

Server B: DEVSQL  (2008)
        DB: MyAnotherAdmin

I have connected to Server B (SQL Management Studio). Now I want to query (Server A).MyAdmin.dbo.MyProcessType from Server B in a T-SQL statement.

How do I do this?

Create a linked server.

After that you can query it by: ServerA.MyAdmin.dbo.MyProcessType
