How to use DNS to make two servers see each other?

love_william
How do I configure the domain controllers of two forests to to see each other so I can configure an external trust relationship between them?

I have two domains that I?d like to trust each other. The first is a single domain whose domain controller is running Windows 2000 and whose domain operation mode is native mode. This server is not just the domain controller, it does everything?there are no other servers, just XP clients. The second domain also has just one server running Windows 2003 R2 single domain whose Domain functional level is Windows 2000 native.

These two servers were configured independently and neither knows each other exists. To my knowledge, there is no way to add one to the forest of the other at this point.

The two servers share a Qwest DSL router/modem.

The Windows 2000 server TCP/IP properties of the local area connection have a non-routable IP address 192.168.1.22 and a default gateway IP address that is a public static IP address purchased from Qwest that is in the DSL modem. The Prefered DNS Server and alternate IP addresses are both in the Qwest system servers somewhere offsite.

The Windows 2003 server TCP/IP properties of the local area connection has a static public IP address purchased from Qwest (so that it can be used as a web server later) and a default gateway IP address that is the same public static IP address in the DSL modem as the Windows 2000 Server.

I believe my first step involves DNS. I am a bit stuck and would appreciate some help making these two servers see each other so I can make a trust relationship.
