There are far more knowledgeable people on this list, but I thought I'd 
offer a suggestion. 

Try running "top" on the server while you're using the thin clients.  My 
guess is that you're swapping RAM like crazy.  If so, add more RAM to 
the server.  After that I'd look at your network.  Is it all 100BaseT at 
the switch?  It is a switch (not a hub) right?  A gig uplink port on the 
100Mb/s switch to the server can work wonders too.  Proper network setup 
is very crucial for thin client performance.
