Please read below and let me know what you all think. Would this work well?
Could it be a part of th LTSP 5 setup?

In response to this question:

Can rdesktop on linux be given the option of routing sound output through a
sound demond such as ESD on linux. The reason is I want to run k12ltsp with
sound from windows (rdesktop) and sound from linux at the same time with out
sacrificing one or the other. Is this possible?

I got this response from the rdesktop team:

if you use artsd and start rdesktop through artsdsp ( see artsdsp --help )
route artsd through esd.

something like this,, using 8bit with 22000 sounds ok with webradio, but if
you play mp3:s with headphones you might use cd quality instead :) it's
a big difference in network load. :\
artsd -a esd -r 22000 -b 8
path/artsdsp path/rdesktop -k us mytsserv

I haven't tried, but since artsd got builtin support for network connections
it might be possible to redirect sound from the terminal server to artsd

oh.. I missed the -r sound flag but you get the general idea :)
