booting over network, using pxe

Specs: Windows Server 2003
Anyone know where I can find clear step by step instructions for booting booting from a dvd over my network, using pxe? That is, I have windows 2003, combined with sp2, on a bootable dvd, and I want to install windows 2003 on server2, by putting the dvd in server1. Because server 1 has a dvd-rw, server 2 has only a cd-rom. I found (complicated) instructions for installing an IMAGE over the net, but no instructions for simply booting computer2 from a bootable dvd in server1.

I have already googled this and looked at at least 20 different explanations of various pxe-related stuff, but couldn't find anything that could help me. Plenty of info on doing remote installation with a *.wim image, but nothing about doing remote installation using a bootable dvd.

Thank you.

Also, I have WDS (windows deployment services) and not RIS (remote installation Services). Most of the instructions I've found with google, talk about RIS. I don't want to boot an IMAGE - because the 2 computers are different.
