According to the Standard Additions dictionary (10.3.6), there is an 
immediate parameter from 0 to 7 (being discussed here), marked as 
"deprecated", which if given, will cause all of the other options to be 
ignored.  It would seem that with either OS X 10.3.5 or 10.3.6, these 
options were added to the Standard Additions dictionary, and the older, 
single-argument format was deprecated.  In order to use this method 
then, one would need to upgrade to at least that version of OS X where 
the option was added.

Not sure what to suggest if someone is using an older version of OS X 
(10.2), other than to upgrade.  There may be another way to do this 
(such as scripting the System Preferences application, or perhaps via 
the shell function and a command line tool), and I'm sure you could do 
it by writing an external for it...
