Starting services automatically on remote XP SP2 Server 2003 Clients

Is there any way that I can enable and start a specific service on a number of XP SP2 computers through a Server 2003 AD Policy?
Basically we have a Server 2003 domain with XP SP2 clients and I would like to start the Messenger (net send) service on all of the clients automatically through the AD either with a policy setting or via a script.
