    A company is divesting from it's parent. As a transition
    step, we want to establish a bridge across the networks
    then start to transition applications that only use
    servers located at the "child" company. However, these
    servers will still be a part of the parent forest and
    domain (win2k) at the start of the transition. The
    applications use win98 and must map with permanent
    connections to drives on the app. server on the parent
    domain. Can someone help us understand how to set up the
    dns or other mechanism for this transition step. We can
    get logged on to the "child" domain, but are unable to map
    to the drives. We also cannot ping the dns name of the
    app server. Do we need to establish trusts between the two
    forests/domains?

    Thanks Very Much for all help and guidance.
