Question Multiple Active Directory Containers

Active Directory Gurus: *Looks for Inaris*

We have restructured our network and reformatted servers in an effort to combine domains into one. Using Windows 2000 Server, I have created a server that will serve as a member server for additional active directory accounts, and another that will just be a basic server.
Here's my question, how can I combine the Active Directories so I don't clutter up one server? These are the names of the servers in question, and I can be more specific if need be.

Domain.local (original server with one set of AD users)
Members.Domain.local (new server that I want to create additional AD users)

ok, im a little rusty i havent been a tech for a while (last job got messy) ok. Say your company is Test Company

root domain TC00 (good name, i dont think this will resulv anywhare heh)

Then have your new servers setup as bdcs based on location
TCCA00 (test company canada 00)

then you can have 99 canadain servers. You can also use diffrent country codes for more servers. This i find to work the best for a naming convention.

I think that answers your question. If it doesnt just repost and ill take another stab'at'er

Thanks for the tip, and I made the domains trusted, but where do I go for the option that makes all trusted domains view-able in the active directory?
