Freenx and nxclient might be an even better option to access
a Linux desktop from windows boxes.   That might even work
pretty well with a windows wireless setup. 

If you run wired, another option for the topology is to
plug the dual-nic k12ltsp server between the main
network and the clients.  This is the normal setup and
with nat enabled on the server, windows clients will
work as well as thin clients on the 'inside' network,
although you may have to add your WINS server in the
k12ltsp dhcp setup to get windows name resolution to
work for other machines on the main network.
