USB Flash drives do work at the terminals by enabling USB support and then using MTools (at least with K12LTSP 3.1.2)  There is a write up on the wiki that describes this. http://k12ltsp.org/phpwiki/index.php/Technical%3AStorage%3AUSB

Also, http://k12ltsp.org/phpwiki/index.php/RonBaughman  describes another method.
