In SSMS object explorer, under the server where you want to create the link, expand Server Objects, right click on Linked Servers, and select "New Linked Server". On the General tab, give the name of the server (including instance name if not default, port number if you want to specify one etc. - but in most cases, you would need just the server name), select SQL Server radio button, on the security tab, specify how you want to connect to the remote server. If both servers are in the same windows domain, and your users have logins on both servers, using the login's current security context is probably the best. You can also specify a proxy account by selecting the "Be made using this security context" selection.

Come to think of it, the links on this page explains these better than I can :)
