What do I need to do to allow a user on a XP PC to shutdown the media service on a media server?
Im guessing
netsvc /stop \\machine_name "Service Name"
but whats the service name?
how do I give the bat file admin right with out giving the user admin rights....the user can have admin rights to that server i guess since noting else is on it, but not to the domain.
Do I have to install something on her PC?

You can add the user's domain account to the local(!) group "Administrators" on the media server.
To start and stop the service, you can use the built-in "sc.exe":
sc \\machine_name stop "Service Name"
You get the name to use by opening the Services MMC on the server, then opening the properties of the service. Use the one found in the field "Service Name" (*not* "Display Name").
