Loading the 'Server' service in Win2k Pro

I am running Windows 2000 Professional. Under services, I don't see the "Server" service. I know it should be listed, but for some reason it isn't. I need to know what steps I need to take to get this service loaded. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
