You don't need a tooltray to create a pseudo service on Win9x.

I know multinational companies that use Win98SE as their standard desktop 
OS (one of them upgraded from Win95 last year).  As they want to use the 
same "environment" in every part of the world and on everything from new P4 
desktops to old P2 laptops, Win2K/XP isn't an option...
