Can I connect SQL Server 2000 with SQL Server 2005 instances?

Is it possible to set up linked server connections from SQL Server 2005 instances to SQL Server 2000 instances?
Yes, it is. You can set up a linked server from SQL Server 2005 to any valid ODBC data source, including SQL Server 2000 or even competitors' databases such as Oracle or DB2. This can be a great way to copy data between databases as you upgrade.
