Proxy and DHCP question

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;%5bLN%5d;307502 mentions that "You can set up a DHCP server to use the option 252 to automatically configure proxy settings for Internet Explorer clients".

But I don't have an option 252 in the DHCP config on my Windows 2003 server.

Must I do something special to get option 252?
What is the procedure for setting up automatic proxy assignment for client on Windows 2003 server using DHCP or DNS?

To add option 252 to a DHCP Server
- Right-click the DHCP server in the DHCP manager, and then click Set Predefined Options.
- click Add.
- In the 'Name' field, type e.g. Autodiscovery Proxy Option.
- In the Data Type drop down, select String, and make sure that the 'Array' check box is NOT checked (the default).
- Type 252 in the 'Code' field
- Type a descrption in the 'Description' field ... and click OK
- Then in the String field: type the URL that points to the location of your configuration file.
- Click OK

What should the config file look like? Do you got a sample?

It's not a file. It's URL that points to the configuration of your proxy.
How to set up that part depends on the type and brand of proxy which you are using.
That's a totally different question which you best post in the appropriate area of EE.
