Mr. wonder , please can you advise me for the following.

We have two branch offices, having individual domains in different forest .recently we bought accounts application which it works trough map drive. I have installed this application in head office , and want to connect the branch office to give access the application.
I am planning to take MPLS service to connect the branch.
how can I configure the 2003 domain server to give access the branch office domain users.
I am confused to choose which option should I take.
1. Is trust relation between two domain will able to give access the shared drive?
2. or shall create the branch office domain as backup domain / or member domain in the same forest ?
Please can you suggest me how should I connect the branch office users to get access the server share drive.

whcih solution is suitable and realiable.

"If there is no shared root DNS server and the root DNS servers for each forest DNS namespace are running a member of the Windows Server 2003 family, configure DNS conditional forwarders in each DNS namespace to route queries for names in the other namespace."

Ideally all offices would be in the same forest/domain and only be seperated as OUs in the domain.

So you would have;
YourbusinessName.com
Main OU
Branch1 OU
Branch2 OU etc.
This is the most reliable and easier to maintain model.

Imo child domains are not needed until you have a large scale business that either has city sites or one business is overseeing/managing others.

At this point unless you are willing to reinstall the branch office [demote/remove present AD then join the Main location Ad] you need to get the trust working.

Thanks for your response.

as i told you the branch office will connect remotely through MPLS . your suggestion to create only one domain and create on OU.
