SQL Server Agent - Autostart

I was hoping someone may have some advice for how I can ensure the SQL Server Agent starts automatically with SQL Server 2000.

I have some scheduled jobs that must run and on a couple of occasions I have been stung by the agent not starting after a reboot of the PC.

Any advice is much appreciated.

Start -> Program Files -> MS SQL Server -> Service Manager

Then select Server and Service ("SQL Server"), click Auto-start service when OS starts
Then select Server and Service ("SQL Server Agent"), click Auto-start service when OS starts
