How to control the order inwhich XP services start

  1. How to control the order in which XP services start

    In a Linux system, rc.d/init.d controls which services get started and in which specific order.
    I would like the same control for XP. Under the CP->Admin,
    the Services allow IF and HOW a service starts, but not when.
    Reading MS Knowlede Base articles, leads to a boot-time control that disables
    all inbound connections until the firewall starts. There is no control to make
    the firewall start any sooner.

    Starting in the order listed would bogus, as Alerter and Automatic updates would
    start even before Event Log and ISSEC

    Any Ideas?

    The no-firewall-before-connection-established-at-startup deal ws fixed in sp2.
    I don't think there's hope for queuering service startups.
