WDS is the base component from Windows Server 2008 which is used for network boot.
You can simple deploy OS with WDS but there's a lot of manual doing needed.
MDT is a Freeware from Micrsoft which uses the WDS for the OS Deployment Core Services and brings some additional stuff like a Database for Application Dependencies, a GUI for an easy Management and so on
