Using WDS to deploy Windows XP images across subnets

    Scenario: I have desktop systems on LAN Subnet A. My servers,
    including my WDS server, is on LAN Subnet B. The servers are all
    Windows 2003 R2 (fully patched). The desktops are all Windows XP
    Professional with SP2.

    Just a couple of questions about using WDS to clone XP images:

    1) What do I need to configure on my Windows 2K3 R2 DHCP server, in
    order to direct PXE clients on Subnet A, to properly point to the WDS
    server on Subnet B?

    2) Is there a comprehensive step-by-step set of instructions for how to
    configured WDS and then how to prep a Windows XP Professional system for
    image capturing?

    I already have the ip forwarding happening on the router, so that DHCP
    requests from Subnet A can reach Subnet B. Do I need to add the custom
    DHCP scope options to the DHCP server so that PXE clients on Subnet A
    get pointed to the WDS server?
