Wow, I just implemented this yesterday myself. For the autostart
configuration, you need sc.exe from the Resource Kit. Search on altavista
for it, there is almost always some site that foolishly posts the entire
RK for public FTP.

Also, the net stop/start command can use the 'short' version of the
service name (bovrc5nt) if you prefer.
