Sharing resources between 2 domains

Hi,

I currently have a W2K domain in Native mode with 1DC. I want to create a new W2K8 domain & let the users access some shared folders on the W2K domain for a limited period of time before the W2K server is de-commissioned.
I understand a 2-way external trust is the way to go. Once the trust is created how will the users be able to access the shared folders ? Is it simply by mapping a drive ?

I have attempted a domain upgrade which was fraught with issues of previously de-commissioned servers. We are looking at about 25 users - therefore a clean slate would be preferable.

Thanking you.

Yes.  Once the trust is created, you can give users in the trusted domain access to those shares via the share and NTFS permissions, just like you would for users in the local domain.  Those users can then map drives to the shares and access the data therein.
