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

Expert Laura E. Hunter directs a reader to resources that can help in creating a trust between two domains in Active Directory.

I need a step-by-step lesson on creating a trust between two AD domains. Lets say I have two domains:
1. web.agni.com (FQDN)Windows 2003 Server
2. web1.jis.com (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?

To create a trust between a Windows Server 2000 and a Windows Server 2003 domain, you'll need to configure an external trust, as described here.
