Two Domains Two DNS servers

    We had a 2000 domain on one subnet with AD and DNS on the DC.
    We just added a second domain using 2003 on another subnet again with AD and
    DNS on the DC.
    The two domains can not browse each other. They can ping each other across
    the router via IP, but they can not find each other by pinging by name.

    I need both domains to be browsable. Any suggestions on how to make these
    two domains more friendly?
    The trust on the 2000 domain has not be activated. I was trying to avoid
    that but would that help in the DNS updates.
    Both DNS servers or dynamic.

    Thanks all,

    -Browser service has nothing to do with DNS, for that you'll need to setup
    -To ping by NetBIOS name = \\servername you'll use broadcasting, because
    routers generally don't allow it, you need Wins, and it works like a charm.
    -To ping by FQDN = \\servername.domain.local you need to use DNS, in this
    scenario you can use Secondary Zones, Forwarding, Conditional Forwarding
    (Only in Windows 2003) and Stub Zones (Only in Windows 2003).

    I hope that the information above helps you

    Good Luck
