Use NX (aka NoMachine).  Clients (free as in beer) for Windows, Macs, and Linux 
are available www.nomachine.org.  For the server, get the FreeNX server (not 
sure if it's in the CentOS repos or not).  Instructions on setting it up 
available at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/FreeNX.  It runs over port 22 (ssh) 
and is encrypted.  Performance is great.

The district is behind a firewall and the server's eth1 has a static IP: 10.x.x.x - what is the easiest way of allowing them to log in as thin clients from areas away from the lab? VLans are not viable, and their laptops are running XP. I should be able to burn a cd with enough info/resources for them to log in, no? DSL?
