Depending on your version of Windows, I suppose it may not show up.  I
know it's there under 2K Pro and XP Pro.

Assuming XP or Server 2003, run:

sc config npf start= boot
sc config nm start= boot

from your installer.  (I believe Server 2003 has the nm service also.)
For testing, though, run this from a cmd.exe process, because I'm not
sure that "boot" is a valid setting for start=.

As for how to do that, it depends on what installer you're using --
check its documentation.  Somewhere it should give you a place to run an
arbitrary command.
