Can I run DamnSmallLinux as a Windows service?

I am looking for a really small Linux version to run as a Virtual Machine on my Windows 2003 box. I can across DamnSmallLinux and noticed it has it's own built in virtual machine framework (so it can run directly off a USB pen drive). I can actually start the DSL from Windows and it comes right up without using VMWare or anything like that. So I'm wondering if there's a way to run the DSL with it's built in virtual machine framework, as a Window's service so I don't have to log in for it to be running. I plan to use this as a secondary web server on the Windows box (running all my LAMP websites). Please let me know what the best approach for this is. Thanks.
