I read this page:
and done every step configuring my DC windows 2003 server RIS Service.

Add the Windows images... everything...

I also hase here a Toshiba M200 TabletPc with no external drives whatsoever.
Made it boot from LAN, it searches for DHCP and... nothing... can't find it.
It displays the following:

PXE-E53: No boot filename received
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent

I have DHCP on my SMC router.
The LAN cable is connected... I'm not using a Wireless connection.

I also found this:
but I don't even have that option there.

Please... HELP!!!!! :)

    You'll need to configure option 67 in DHCP with the name of the RIS server.

    I made it with another tool... much easyer.

    It's all explained here:

    There are many TFTP free tools on the market to run with M$ RIS... Specially much easier ones to deal with.
