Command line task schedule changes in WINDOWS 2000

I am using Wise installer to install some scheduled events on Windows 2000 systems.
It is essentially copying a number of .job files into the WINNT\TASKS directory.

Once the tasks are in the directory, I need to change the user id and password that they run as.

On XP and newer systems I use SCHTASKs and it's command line option.  I can't find anything on 2000 that does something similar.

The AT command allows you to add an event put none of its parameters relate to the user and password.

If you have a method that will work, I will greatly appreciate knowing what it is.
