If all of your AirPort base stations will be interconnected by Ethernet you do not want to use the "Extend a network" option as this applies only to wireless connections.
However, in a roaming or all-Ethernet connected network, there is a requirement to have a primary router to provide both DHCP & NAT services. I haven't tried this by substituting a Windows Domain Controller to provide DHCP.
The AirPort only have three options for control of DHCP & NAT: 1) Both enabled, 2) DHCP enabled only, or 3) both disabled.

Thanks for your help. We are not having much luck with the roaming style wifi network, some devices don't seem happy switching to another ap and just drop out.
I will keep experimenting !
