You don't need your own DSL connection.

As others have stated the only real thing to be careful of is not
getting your two nics mixed up.

eth0 - goes to your own DEDICATED PRIVATE switch where all your
classroom clients are connected. (If your switch is in a switch closet
make sure your tech or anyone else does not plug an ethernet cable
from somewhere else into YOUR switch)
eth0 address will be set to by default

eth1 - goes to the school network as if it was just another windows
computer your connecting. It gets it's address from the school DHCP

you will be broadcasting dhcp on eth0 NOT eth1. So your ltsp server is
now the gateway for all the clients.

Good luck fighting FUD. Rember stay calm and read this
