If you're a programmer, you can look into using the Windows API LsaAddAccountRights(). That's a bit over the top though; I'd stick with wizkid's suggestion of the ntrights utility from the resource kit.

If your need is specifically for Log on as a service, and not any other privilege, then webtrans's solution is pretty much zero-fuss.
