Error 1058 / Windows Firewall / ICS can't start

Have a server that is running W2K3 SBS.  The Windows Firwall / ICS service won't start and we get an error 1058:  The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

Need help trying to figure this out

SBS 2003 *WILL NOT* run the windows firewall. Period. Full Stop. It is a limitation of SBS in a single-nic configuration. Attempting to run it will break SBS. As I said above, SBS does not support ICS *OR* the windows firewall (everything after my "or" seems to have gotten lost in the noise.)

This is an SBS specific issue. SBS 2003 does not support running ICS or the windows firewall. Attempting to do so *will* break SBS.

I'm not trying to run ICS.  I'm just trying to turn the firewall on, but ICS is part of the service.

All the services above are started.
