I know Server 2008/Vista/7 have the ability to do this built-in.  But I need to do this in Windows 2003.  Basically when a certain event is logged in the event viewer, I want it to run a scheduled task.  Anyone know how to do this?

AFAIK this isnt possible, windows 2008 introduced the Task Scheduler 2.0 which offers the functionality - 2003 didnt allow this... if anyone knows different feel free to educate :)

You could write a script or a program to do this, but I don't think it is built in.

Nevermind, answered my own question.  Visual Cron will do what I need.
