Write a system service

I have never written a system service, and dont see the option to do it.  I am using Visual studios 2010 Express.  I also have Visual Studios 2005 Standard Edition.  When I go to create a new project, I don't see the option for a windows service.  Am I missing something?  I need to do this in Visual Basic with .net 2.0.  Thanks, Chad
