Somehow I thought this would be a lot easier than it seems. Basically I need to create a windows event log where I can specify the type, source, and the description. I need this to test my event log monitoring program. The only material I was able to find is the windows command "eventtriggers.exe". However, it seems like this program only acts on events you specify and not create articifical events. Does anyone have any experience with this? I need to create the following:

Source: MSSQLSERVER
Type: Error
User: domain\user
Description: Failed

Have you tried LogEvent.exe? I haven't tested it on Windows 2003 yet - may work for you...
