SuSE, openSUSE IT solutions companies have been generating lots of buzz regarding thin clients basically since the early 1990s, but have yet to really penetrate into many suitable environments. These relatively cheap computer appliances carry broad promises like energy efficiency, space efficiency, and centralized maintenance and data storage. These claims could sound like the computer industry equivalent of snake oil. Kiwi-LTSP, a combination of KIWI imaging technology and Linux Terminal Server Project, is one open source solution for thin client servers.

There were a few CD's of knoppix that had errors with the terminal server, most versions after 3.8 were good.

Knoppix 5.1 and above offer great, easy and simple terminal server setups. Use the Knoppix terminal server app. Basically click and boot to PXE.

Anyone needing PXE might also look at Gpxe. Bootable pxe images for non-pxe nic's.
