    A: Yes, take a look here: Windows Search 4.0 Administrator’s Guide

    What does Windows Deployment Services have to do with Windows Search?  Judging by the surrounding questions, it would seem that that’s what was being referred to when "WDS" was asked about.  This looks like the results of an overly quick search on Technet for "WDS" that turned up ‘Windows Desktop Search’ instead of ‘Windows Deployment Services’.
