PXE-T01: File not found and PXE:E3B: TFTP Error- File not found.

Have you run the Windows Deployment Services Legacy setup.  This will ask you to create the default boot image.  This is the same thing you used to setup RIS origionally.

You probably need to run the Windows Deployment Services Legacy setup.  You will be asked to create a default windows xp image.  After that you should be able to install images from the server.  I have done this in the past and it works well.  Just make sure you do not upgrade it from Mixed Mode to Native Mode.

Here is a link from microsoft on setting up WDS.
