SCCM 2007: "Configure WDS" option not available

I installed SCCM 2007 on Windows 2008 R2 and all is working fine.

Now I try to enable OS deploying. Therefore I need to configure WDS.
I installed the Micrososft deployment toolkit: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/solutionaccelerators/dd407791.aspx

But don't have the option to configure it (I didn't configure but can only "remove wds pxe filter", whereas I expect the option to edit it):

Deployment Toolkit
Please advise.

Appeared not to be needed. OS deployments work fine without needing to conigure this PXE-filter ...

Didn't find it anywhere on Internet, but just tried to configure it and it works WITHOUT the need of PXE-filter. Still would like to know the reason though.
