bulkadmin, dbcreator, iskadmin, processadmin, public, securityadmin, serveradmin, setupadmin,  sysadmin.

Above are the choices of Server roles.  If a user needs to create jobs using SQL Server Agent->jobs and create maintenance plans using Management - > maintenance plans, what would be the MINIMUM server role to give in order to perform those requirements?

are you limited to assigning rights based upon SQL's predefined server roles, or can you create a server role and give specific rights?
