I recently installed MS ADS 1.1 on a Windows 2003 Enterprise Server to test and managed to get PXE boot working. Both the DHCP Server & the RIS/ADS Server need to be configured as IP Helpers. What happens is the DHCP Server supplies the initial IP address, then the PXE client sends another DHCP request and expects a response from the RIS/ADS server. It took me a while to understand the logic (plus ADS doesn't work with 2003 SP2 without some hotfixes that you need to request from MS). I also had DHCP snooping enabled which threw me a bit as the ADS server port wasn't trusted.
