I've installed WDS on my 2003 server.  I've configured and sysprepped my target machine.  Now I'm a little confused how to capture the image of that machine.  Anyone know of a good step by step guide?  Thanks

You need to install a capture image.  If you have a boot image loaded, right click it and select "create capture image" or something to that effect.

ok - feel like WAY in over my head, but ... followed all the way to actually capturing.  i've unjoined the domain, got the machine in a workgroup, sysprepped - and network booted.  I get intot the capture menu on the client, but I'm not able to find network / server, whatever.  I followed another link which told me i have to inject my nic driver into the boot file.  seems logical cause when i use the shift+F10 or whatever and do the ipconfig thing, there is no address.  ok, i'm just a preacher ...  which boot file  do i have to inject something into - the pe one, the capture one i created?  and where do i find imagex to pull the whole thing off?  dazed and confused, but entertaining to you pros i'm sure ...

Does the WDS server is authorized in active directory?

And sorry if the question sounds stupid but do you boot using PXE and if you do DHCP process is good (locally)?
