Problems with Linked servers between sql 2000 and sql 2005

Dear all


I have created linked server object between a sql 2000 and sql 2005 database. i have the latest mdacs installed and all the services enabled on both sides.

But when i try and run a sql statement on the sql 2000 side i get this error:

[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (PreLoginHandshake()).]General network error. Check your network documentation.

If i try and run a swl statment on the sql server 2005 side the procedure works.

 Has anyone experienced the same problem?Any advice?


Thank you so much for the help.
