comment SQL Server 2000: SQL Server Browser Service missing
Technically speaking, in SQL Server 2000 the first instance to start up on the server starts the SQL Server Listener, which does not show up as an independent service like SQL Server Browser (meaning you can't turn it off). The rest check in when they start up, if you are running multiple instances. This is one of the reasons that the SQL Server Browser Service came into being - SQL Slammer targeted the listener.
