How do I design two Active Directory domains in a client network?

I am designing two Active Directory domains in my client network. The domains are Domain A and Domain B. Can you please provide a step-by-step guide for designing two domains with DNS and Active Directory?

1. Setting up Active Directory.
2. Setting up trusts.
3. Setting up DNS Servers.

For Windows Server 2003, your best bet is going to be the Deployment Kit, which is available online from the Microsoft Web site. The section on "Deploying Network Services" will assist you in designing and installing your DNS servers, and the section on "Designing and Deploying Directory and Security Services" will assist you with deploying Active Directory and configuring trust relationships.
