There are different ways to set up a linked server, but if there is already a connection to a sql server with a linked server it is sometimes not a good idea to mess with the existing one.  Unfortunately you can’t pick Sql Server and add another one.  However you can still use sql server and just pick ‘other data source’ as below:

This will, of course, require you to reference the linked server name when calling out to your tables and whatnot…so I recommend you GET CLEVER.  A few suggestions:
