for Deepak: you have active directory turned on for the win 2k box? should pick it up.

for jjogendra: you may need a boot disk for the workstation that is not operational yet, or a pxe nic card. it needs to find the dns server so it knows where to go to get the setup for your os.

from the server readme:

Remote Installation Services
Provides services that you can use to set up new client
computers remotely, without the need to visit each client.
The target clients must either support remote startup with
the Pre-Boot eXecution Environment (PXE) ROM, or else must be
started with a remote-start floppy disk. On the server, you
will need a separate partition for Remote Installation Services.

"Disk Partition Requirements for Remote Installation Services" earlier in this readme series:

If you plan to use Remote Installation Services on this server (so
that you can install operating systems onto other computers), you will
need a separate partition for use by Remote Installation Services.
Plan on using NTFS on this partition: NTFS is required for the Single
Instance Store feature of Remote Installation Services. If you need to
create a new partition for Remote Installation Services, plan on doing
it after Setup, and leave enough unpartitioned disk space so that you
can create it (2 GB of space is recommended, but you might need less,
depending on how the server will be used). Alternatively, you can plan
to use dynamic disk format, which allows more flexibility in the use
of the disk space than basic format. (However, dynamic disk format
does not work on a computer that contains multiple operating systems.
The only operating system that can access a hard disk using dynamic
disk format is Windows 2000.)
For information about Remote Installation Services and about basic
and dynamic disk formats, see Windows 2000 Help, available after
running Setup. To display Help, click Start, and then click Help.
