Restore error

We are attempting to restore our sqb file from a different SQL 2000 server to our disaster recovery SQL 2000 server (we ahve SQL backup 5 on both servers). When we try to restore by creating a new database or we create it first then attempt to restore over the newly created database we get the following error.

I'm very new to this product and am not sure what is going on here. It is as if it cannot connect to the local SQL server, it seems like I am missing something simple. I also wonder how it creates the logical files, how do I tell them where to go?

    I did a command line restore and it appears the original error I posted is gone but now I get this. is this because the original backup I am restoring from is bad?

    Yes, it would appear that there is a problem with the backup file. Were you using compression level 2 or 3? Thanks.

    Can you also confirm the version of SQL Server 2000 you have installed? You need to have SP 3a or later installed.
