I presume you are using WSS3.0 or newer so you require the Permission levels for this.

The office site has a good matrix you should keep bookmarked for this very thing.

Permission levels for WSS3.0

Making a new services account

If you are making a separate account for this then you need to give it in most cases full control for SharePoint.
