Hello acsmith,
in windows 2000 resource kit you have a tool named: srvinstw.exe . with this tool you can add or remove services. so what you need to do it to find that file on the internet or on win2k resourse kit and run it...
after you'll install it as a service the program will run when the windows start befor the alt+ctrl+del.
hope that help you, ben.
b.t.w: if you dont find that file i can send you add via e-mail the file is only 87k.
