Default Replication Troubleshooting

I am attempting to configure replication using the publishing and distribution wizard. After I select the default of setting up my server as its own distributor, I receive a message letting me know that the system account is being used and I must change it in order to properly set up replication. After clicking ok, I click the "this account option" and enter in my user name and password. I then receive an error message stating "the new service startup account name you have supplied is invalid or does not exist". I have verified that my user is part of the administrators group and the domain users group on the server. I'm trying to find out what I am missing in order to set this up. I'm running SQL Server 2000 on a Windows 2000 Server machine. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Check the services account which runs both SQL Server and SQLSERVERAGENT Account, this should be the same.
