Well, actually there's already a howto in http://smtp.active.ee/download/ltsp4_lda_v0.2.tar.gz. It's written by Andres Toomsalu. It give some nice instructions and code about howto setup USB (storage) devices, and cdroms. I haven't tried USB though.

But it doesn't come with a built kernel, and that could be the more difficult thing. As this seems interesting, this weekend I'm going to work on this and perhaps for monday I have the howto + needed files :-). 

Oh, something more: I have compiled my kernel with a nice bootsplash and it's nearly correctly displayed in my test terminal, which is a laptop (some extrange color points appear), and translated most of the messages to Spanish (but I'll try to give you all in english don't be afraid :-).
