[K12OSN] [Highly OT] Terminal service with win2003 server

Many commercial thin clients are setup to do just that...
they have some wanky windows CE or something similar that they boot from 
and can attach to a windows client server...

I personally have never used one as such because I have ZERO windows 
servers at any of my LTSP install sites. And don't want to spend the 
time configuring and hardening one just to test out my thin clients 
ability to do such. But know that it is possible, with commercial clients.
