Trusts

I have a trust setup between two domains. Should I be able to see each domain and it's computers from the windows explorer in networks? I can't see them unless I connect directly to one of the machines in the trusted domain.
Thanks.

When you have two-way trust estabilished, you should be able to see under "Networks" that domain. When you expand it then computers/servers should be visible there.
So, please verify if this is a two-way forest trust

I think you are seeing expected behavior. If those domains are on separate subnets you should only see machines on your local subnet. This sounds like it is probably a standard issue with just browsing for machines across routers. That only works if you use WINS. Otherwise, you will need to connect via \\servername.domain.local

Ou won't see computers in other domains in explorer, this is expected behaviour. You have to connect using a fqdn to machines outside your domain. I presume you have DNS conditional forwarders or stub zones for the foreign domain on each side?
