Really simple windows 2000 server question: How do I add a network user to the local admin group?

We have a Windows 2003 server that is our AD controller. I have created a user account on it. I would like that user to be granted local administrator privileges on another server that is running Windows 2000 Advanced Server. When I try to add it using Computer Management --> Local Users and Groups, I get an error stating "The object EMTRAX\Users is not valid because only objects from domains that appear in the "Look In" box are allowed."
How do I get it to appear in this box? Or, how do I make it work without it being in the box? I'd prefer to not make this computer into a secondary domain controller or anything like that. The win2k server in question is already a member of the domain.
