You first need to create a capture image, once you have the capture image get your XP machine set up as you want it, then run sysprep, then boot into the capture image and follow the prompts, it will capture your setup and save it to a WIM.

I would also save a copy of the wim onto the local machine as saving them to the WDS server over the network and they sometimes play up. so then you can manually copy it to the WDS server later if this happens.
