Deploying windows using MDT and WDS

For a while I was working on solution for deploying windows using WDS (Windows Deployment service ) and MDT (Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.). I came across many interesting issue everyday.
Like you should have desperate VLAN for server build purpose. Only this server should have "iphelper " enabled.

Going forward I will keep sharing my experience with MDT and WDS

I was very pleased to finally find someone documenting using MDT and WDS together but can't see the screenshots you have scanned into to the scribd reader, is it possible to get a .pdf copy of this or a republication.

Much Appreciated

Want to ask one question?
Why need to use MDT and WDS together?
Can use either one to deploy windows?

Want to know more about it before planning the upgrade. Thanks.

@Willis
You need WDS if you just want to deploy windows but you need MDT you want to manage how it get deployed.

Hi. I'd be pleased to see your findings but you've set them as private. Perhaps you'd be kind enough to email me the PDF you mentioned?

Thanks
