where do I run sysprep from

I'm trying to create a .wim image of my w2k8 server using PXE.  I can get to the WDS image capture wizard but cannot see the volume to capture.  I did a search and found out that I need to do a Sysprep.  My question is where do I run the sysprep from?  The WDS server or on the w2k8 server that I'm going to image.  Plus, do anyone know how to do a sysprep?

you do a pxe boot (usually f12 on the bios screen) from the server to capture and select the capture profile after running sysprep on the machine to be captured.
