Pocket PC connecting to named instance of SQL Server 2000

I am having trouble connecting to a remote named instance of SQL Server
via Pocket PC. I have had absolutely no luck connecting with VS 2005
(even to a default instance), so I wen't back to VS .NET 2003 (I had
success doing this a while back).
I am trying to connect to a named instance of SQL. This is where I
think my problem is. My app errors out at the Connection.Open();

Here is my connection string:
connStr=@"Data Source=Server\Instance;Initial
Catalog=Database;uid=User;pwd=password"; (I'm keeping it simple until I
get the connection working)

When I throw my exception it says "Specified SQL server not found:

Does anyone know if I have to do anything special when connecting from
a Pocket PC to a named instance of SQL Server.

Any help is appreciated.
