Setting workstation services through group policy

I want to set some services to manual or disabled through group policies. The problem I'm having is that those services are not on the server so they do not show up in GP editor. I know I can install GP manager on an XP workstation that has those services and manipulate them that way. The problem is I may need to install it on more than one workstation since one workstation does not have all the services I want to work on. Also I am doing this remotely so it is easier to do this on the server.

Is there a way to set a service to manual in GP editor from the server if that server does not have that service?

Is there a way using the command line to change a service startup type to manual on a remote computer?

you can use the sc commands to control services - not sure on the startup type though...if its in the same domain, just right click computer management - then connect to another computer
