I think you need to PXE boot (and therefore utilize LTSP) in order to get sound.  I don't think straight XDMCP will get you sound.

Although, having used Tux Type, I don't think sound is critical to its performance.  have you tried?

As a result, I think some programs such as tux type will not work because they require sound.  Either way, it would be nice to have sound if the kids want to play any multimedia.  Otherwise, they will have to connect to the Windows network!  Nooooooooo!!!
