I have exactly the same question.  Would someone please post a more
pedagogical procedure of creating the LocalSystem account in W2K?  Unlike in
the case of NT4, I found no place to specify any "special rights" for the
user.  I have been trying to make OpenSSHD work (for a multi-user
environment started from inetd) for a week and have not gotten anywhere (see
the following error message produced right after keying the password.)
