Problem with start up of Websphere 4.0

I've installed a trial version of Websphere 4.0 of Windows 2000. I get the following error when starting the server:
Server Default Server failed during initialization : com.ibm.ejs.security.registry.RegistryErrorException: Windows 2000:The Workstation service has not been started.
The user that I log with as administrator rights and I've re-installed it the server without success.
What is the workstation service ? Are there other services (other that the 2 services for the HTTP server that work fine)that I should see ?
Any ideas

Forgot the mention that the log also contains the following:

Does that mean it is a service problem or a user registry access problem

hi,
Every server needs a workstation service to be started for particular programs. sometimes the workstation service is set to "manual start" . You can start the workstation service by doing the following..
Go to Start > settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
double click the services icon...scroll to the bottom and start the workstation service..and make it "AUTO START" by configuring the properties of the "workstation" .
hope this helps..
