I have found some scripts on newsgroups for rebooting, but I run into problems where they can't be executed due to lack of permissioning. I've also seen a funny buffer overrun solution. For NT, I have seen VB and other programs (including using the Shutdown.exe program that comes with the NT Resource Kit), but I am not aware of anything for Win2K.
