As the message says, you must change the SQL Server Agent account (service). Use a domain account that gives you access to the replication folders.
The Snapshot Agent must be able to connect to the publication database on the Publisher and the distribution database on the Distributor. By default on Windows 2000, the snapshot folder used for replication is located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Mssql\Repldata on the distributor. Each Snapshot Agent must have full control access to this folder. By default on W2000, the replication agents run in the security context of SQL Server Agent domain user account. If the domain user account is not member of the local Administrators group on the Distributor, you should create a shere for the snapshot folder and grant necessary permissions to the share to the domain account under which these replication agents run.
