The first screens are obvious to get through, but the third window is not.

To automatically add a captured image to the WDS server, select the checkbox to connect to the WDS server, enter the server name (no \\), then wait…wait a little more.

When the authentication window opens fill it out with the proper credentials to access the WDS server and target share with write priveleges, hit OK and wait some more.

After authentication, hit Shift-F10 to open a DOS window.

Net use to a directory on the WDS server and close the window.

In the wizard browse to the mapped drive and directory that you wish to capture the image to.

After the capture the WDS server will add the image to its configuration.
You must then open the properties of the image and select the appropriate UNATTEND.XML for that image.
