Maybe possible -- but definately not feasible...  I would suggest looking
into running vnc on the dialup computer, and connecting to the LTSP server
via vnc.  It's still going to be PAINFULLY slow, I've done it in a pinch.

Let me stress the PAINFULLY part of that equation...  Other than for a
quick test, or a quick fix, it's really not usable.  And actual X traffic
over dialup I know won't work at all (again, maybe possible, the protocols
allow it, but I don't think it would actually work at all)

Perhaps I'm wrong, and someone has found an ultra-bandwidth-frual way to
connect.  But I don't know of any...  Sorry...
