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?

Install the freenx client software from nomachine.com on the XP laptops.

Install the freenx server on your ltsp box.

If they want access from outside the school you are going to have to
open (port forward to your ltsp box) at least one port on the
firewall. It does not necessarily have to be 22.

I have not done it, but others have. Maybe they can fill in the details.
