The service is already enabled.  I need to add these Options to the current server
You typed in what you needed.  If you already have your dhcp pool set up, but just need to add the options, type in the commands you listed earlier and refresh the lease on a client.

I assume there are some thin clients you are wanting to boot and pull an image? Or something similar?
