But on Server 2008, when i configure WDS i am unable to get the settings mentioned to change it

all it shows are the paths for Default boot program and Default boot image (PSA file for reference)

Try changing the default pxeboot file to pxeboot.n12 from your WDS boot folder.click on browse and select this file and restatr the WDS Server to make the changes effctive.
