I cannot login as SYSDBA

I'm running Oracle 8i for Windows NT (8.0.5) on Windows Server 2000. Somewhere I read that I need to be in ora_dba group on Windows NT platform in order to login as sysdba to database. But I cannot find this group. When I try to login as sysdba as system/manager, login fails with ORA-01031: insufficient privileges. I need to execute startup and shutdown commands from SQL*Plus.
Thx for help

SQL> connect system/manager as sysdba
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
