How do I get the SCCM server to direct the clients so they get DHCP, and connect to the SCCM server?

Do I need to have the WDS role installed? Is this a requirement?

In short yes, "The Transport Server WDS role service is required for PXE support"

see: Planning for PXE Initiated Operating System Deployments

Also I think it's pretty important that you install WDS then do nothing else related to WDS. SCCM configures it for you.

In our network we had to configure our DHCP server to return the 066 Boot Server Host Name and 067 Bootfile Name options as well. –  Michael Steele Apr 11 '11 at 21:22
