Hi John, 

The following configuration works for us to redirect PXE requests to our Altiris server: 

# Server information for PXE clients
if substring (option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) = "PXEClient" {
   option vendor-class-identifier "PXEClient";
   option dhcp-server-identifier;
   server-name "";
