You might be able to use a universal boot floppy (or if you are using
your laptop as the client - a special PCMCIA boot floppy).  There is
even a boot disk that will write the required info to your HD, and then
at boot time you can choose Windows or LTSP.  This is what I use here at
home.  The family can boot to Win98 (the local hard drive) to play the
games or they can boot the computer as if it was a thin client to my
server.

Need more info, just let me know... I think I have links or even the
images to all the floppys I mentioned.
