The SQL Server was not found or was not accessible

I got this error while setting up a system that requires a remote computer to access SQL 2008 stored on another computer in the same domain:
The server was not found r was not accessible.
Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.
When I installed SQL Server, I was sure I set up the system just so. How can I troubleshoot this?

i'm sure you are "sure" but have you gone back and verified?

Also, how are you trying to connect to the remote SQL box?
