How do I create a trust between two Active Directory domains?

I need a step-by-step lesson on creating a trust between two AD domains. Lets say I have two domains:
1. (FQDN)Windows 2003 Server
2. (FQDN)Windows 2000 Server

When I used the dcpromo command in both the servers it created separate domains as well as a separate DNS for each. Right now I want to create a trust relationship between these two domains. Can you help?
