Setting services to startup in a certain order

Is there a way to configure my Windows 2000 server to startup services in a certain order?  My SQL server manager needs to start before some other services, and I was wondering if I could "move it up" in the service starting order.

or write a batch file like this:

net start sqlservicename
sleep 5
net start...

Note: Copy this file into startup, but set this services to automatic
