Permissions required to restart the print spooler service?

Hello,
We have a 2003 Active Directory domain with 20 2003 SP1 servers. We have a help desk team that i need to grant access to restart the print spooler across the servers.
We only have one policy - I've edited this to allow the group acess to restart the spooler service.
I've then created a task pad displaying the service for each server.
When a memeber of the helpdesk team attempts to stop the service they get:
Error 5 access denied

I've read that SP1 changes the acl on the 'service control manager' and have run the following command:
sc sdset SCMANAGER D:(A;;CCLCRPRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCRPWPRC;;;SY)(A;;KA;;;BA)S:(AU;FA;KA;;;WD)(AU;OIIOFA;GA;;;WD)
This results in the following error: The ACL structure is invalid
I've also run:
subinacl /service \\mlsspctx01\spooler /GRANT=mlslocal\tpad=F
And get back:
+service \\mlsspctx01\spooler
/GRANT=mlslocal\tpad=F
Elapsed Time: 00 00:00:00
Done:        0, Modified        0, Failed        0, Syntax errors        0

I've made sure that the policy has been refreshed, but still my user get the error 5 message... Can anyone think of what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you for looking.

Thank you, however I'm not sure that relates to my problem. We have 2003 servers.

Does anyone else have any ideas?
Thanks.

I've managed to fix this myself. How do I close this call without issuing points?
